Fried Peach Pies
Southern Style fried pies! Change up the filling for something different!

all purpose flour
lard or shortening
I highly recommend lard
more or less
21 oz. can peach pie filling
vegetable oil or shortening for frying
1 egg beaten with water
To make the crust: Mix together flour and salt with a whisk. Cut in the lard using a pastry cutter until the mixture looks crumb-y.
Mix in the milk until a ball can be formed.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8" thick.
Using a salad bowl or something else about 6 " in diameter, cut out as many discs of dough as you can.
To make pies: Spoon a large dollop of filling into each disc, leaving about an inch of dough all the way around.
Brush the edges with egg wash and fold dough over. Seal the edges with a fork and poke a hole in the middle so the pie can vent.
Heat oil in a large skillet. When oil is hot, fry each pie until both sides are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot, cold, or room temperature and enjoy!!
