Pie Dough:
2 C. white pastry flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 T. sugar
6 T. butter
1/3 C. milk
1 egg yolk

Filling:
2 cups pie filling of choice

Icing:
2 T. warm water
1 T. corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar until thickened to flowing consistency

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and butter with pastry cutter until slightly lumpy. Beat egg yolk with milk and add to the flour mixture. Stir with fork and pat into a ball. Knead as little as possible. Form into 8-9 small balls. Roll out between two pieces of thick plastic. Place into a fry pie press and fill with 1/4 cup pie filling, or if you don’t have a press, simply fold over and press edges with tines of a fork. Moisten edges with egg whites before sealing. Deep fry like doughnuts at 375 degrees for two minutes, then glaze. Serves 8.
