This dough can be made with fresh apples. You just have to precook the apples. My grandmothers, mother and everyone in my family make them with fresh apples.
I would think you could simmer a Grannie Smith in cinnamon, brown sugar and water for a few minutes, you'd probably have to experiment to make a tasty filling for the hand pies, just a thought but it would be a lot faster than rehydrating dried apples. Yom Tov, Shalom!
Traditional fried pies are always made with dried apples. This recipe is great.
Fresh apples in fried pies don't cook long enough for the apples to get done
Sounds good but why isn't it made with fresh apples? Has anyone tried it that way?
