Ingredients

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    tablespoons shortening

  • 1/3

    cup boiling water

  • 1

    cup cherry pie filling

  • Oil for deep-fat frying

  • 1/4

    cup maple syrup

  • 1/4

    cup whipped topping

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Divide dough into four portions; roll each into an 8-in. circle. Place 1/4 cup of pie filling in the center of each circle. Fold dough over filling; secure with toothpicks. In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry pies, folded side down, in oil for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn and fry 2-3 minutes longer. Drain on paper towels. Remove toothpicks. Serve with syrup and whipped topping. Yield: 4 servings.
