I believe it was Linda that asked for a recipe for apple fritters. I don't have that but do have this recipe for fried pies.

Sherry's Fried Pies Recipe

1 large can apple, peach or blueberry pie filling

2 C. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/3 C. shortening
3/4 C. buttermilk
pinch of baking soda
shortening, melted

1 C. confectioners' sugar
1-2 T. milk

Open and place fruit in pan or MW safe dish. Heat until hot but not boiling. Drain and mash with a fork or potato masher.

Mix flour, salt, and shortening together. Add baking soda to buttermilk then add to flour, blending well. Do not make it too stiff. Add more buttermilk if needed. Roll dough onto a floured board to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut a rounded circle using an inverted saucer as a guide.

Place 1 T. fruit in the center of one side of circle. Fold over the other side and seal by pressing edges with a fork. Prick to 3-4 times. Melt shortening in an iron skillet and fry pies until brown, turning once.

Glaze: Combine sugar and milk by adding milk slowly to reach a glaze consistency. Spread over each pie. Makes 8 pies.
