Sweetie Pies

The crust:

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp room temperature shortening
1 large egg, plus 1 beaten egg white
5 tbsp ice water

In a large bowl toss the flour, baking powder and salt.  Using a pastry cutter, mix in the shortening until it resembles coarse crumbs.  In a small bowl mix the beaten egg and the ice water.  Stir into the flour mixture until the dough comes together.  Divide into 6 even balls. 

On a lightly floured surface roll each ball into a 6 inch disk.  Brush the egg white around each rim.  Now you can place around 1/3 cup of your favorite chilled pudding or fruit filling. Fold the dough over the filling and seal and crimp edges with a fork. Refrigerate each pie until ready to fry!

In a deep skillet heat around 3 cups of peanut oil to 375.  Use a deep fry thermometer.  Carefully add 2 pies at a time.  Turning 2-3 times and around 3 minutes until brown.  Carefully remove pies from the oil and place on paper towels.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  

Now share one with your sweetie.

Happy Valentine's Day!
