whenever sticking occurs; lift pastry slightly and sprinkle flour 
underneath. cut into 6-inch rounds, using a saucer as a guide. spoon about 
2 tablespoons of the apple filling onto one half of each round. moisten the 
edge of one half of the round with water to help form a tight seal and fold 
other half of the round over the filling. press edges together with a fork.

over medium heat. place as many pies as will fit in skillet without 
crowding. fry pies on one side 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. turn

necessary to keep pies from sticking. serve warm with ice cream or slices 
or sharp cheddar cheese, or glaze with a sugar glaze if desired.
