Great Grandma Martin's Fried Apple Pies

This recipe was written down exactly like my Great Grandma Minnie Ola Parker Martin told it to me.

2 cups dried apples

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

sugar to taste


Cover apples with water, cook until soft adding more water as necessary.

Beat or blend apples until smooth.

Add nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar.

Make a white bread dough omitting shortening.

Roll out as for pastry crust, only not quite as thin.

Cut out circles of dough, "the size of a sauce pan".

Place 1 1/2 to 2 Tbls filling on each side of the circle.

Fold other side over to form a half moon.

Wet edges of crust with water and seal edges by pressing with fork.

Fry in deep pot of oil until brown.
