Edna’s Fry Pies


  • PIES:
  • 9 cups cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 cups shortening
  • 2 cup water
  • Thick fruit filling
  • Shortening for deep-fat frying
  • GLAZE:
  • 8 pounds confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups warm water


  • 1. To make pies, combine in large bowl the flour, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas. Add water, a little at a time, until the flour mixture is moistened. Form into 4 balls.
  • 2. Divide each ball into 10 pieces and roll each piece into a circle. Top one side of circle with filling and fold circle in half. Crimp edges to seal.
  • 3. Heat shortening; fry a few pies at a time in deep fat until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  • 4. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine glaze ingredients until smooth. While pies are still warm, dip them into glaze. Allow pies to drip on wire racks until cool.
