Fried Sweet Potato Pies

Ingredients

 

  • 4-1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

  • Directions

    • In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine eggs and milk; add to crumb mixture, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Cover and chill several hours.
    • In a large bowl, combine the seven filling ingredients; stir until smooth. Divide the dough into 25 portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 5-in. circle. Spoon 1-1/2 tablespoons of filling on half of each circle. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal.
    • In a cast-iron or an electric skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375°. Fry pies, in batches, until golden brown, 1 minute. Drain on paper towels. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar. Store in the refrigerator.
