Need A Good Fried Turnover Recipe

21 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a good recipe for a fried, fruit filled turnover. Something like what McDonald's used to have with their hot apple pies. Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Chebe maybe? It's unique because it's not crumbly. I've made calzone's with it and it holds up really well so I would think would work for fried pies.

Oh thanks. I can try it but would have to order some online as we don't have availability like that at local stores. I was really thinking of something I could make myself.

I make pie crust with the recipe on the side of the box of lard. (The brand in the blue box/tub.) It turns out perfectly flaky but not crumbly at all and I simply use rice flour and not a flour mix. I think it would probably work well rolled out thick and deep fried. As always, I include a disclaimer about pie crust, I've been making it since I was about 3 and have been told that apparently it can be a difficult skill to master. Don't work it too much, as soon as it's "dough" roll it out gently once and only once on a floured surface. Use a finger dipped in water wet edges to make them seal together.

It's actually pretty tempting to try this myself. I know I shouldn't, stupid useless missing gallbladder and all that. But little fried pies sound so yummy!

Thanks eatmeat! That's what I was looking for!smile.gif I don't know why I couldn't find one to suit. I Googled 60 ways from Sunday but never thought to search for fried apple pie ----- DUH!huh.gif

The only thing is the shortening. Crisco is soy & I can't do soy. Then there's the whole low sal thing. Would it work do you think to use safflower oil instead of shortening? Because of low iodine I can't do any margarine or butters either.

Oh thanks Adelaide. We cross posted. Yeah, I know about the pie crust thing ---- I have tried umpteen pie crusts & have never been able to get the hang of it. My sister can make it perfect every time --- guess she got all the pie crust genes cause I sure didn't!laugh.gif

Could you use Spectrum shortening? It is from palm oil I believe.

Balk at the idea all you want, but barring being a vegetarian, the key to a perfect pie crust is lard. Say it with me L-A-R-D. Lard. The fat of a dead pig. Besides the obvious magic of it being a pig, it isn't margarine, or butter, or soy, I don't think it has an iodine problem. (And yes you have to use a solid fat, no liquids will work for a pie crust to the best of my knowledge.)

The recipe eatmeat posted with the flour, shortening, etc, is pie crust. It doesn't CALL it pie crust, but when you mix flour, salt and shortening, it's pie crust.

What you need to do is call your sister! You make the filling, she can do the crust. It'll be perfect.

I agree about lard--it also makes a very good biscuit :)

Thanks you two. I'm not afraid of L-A-R-D! Heck, I need to put some fat on these skinny bones.laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

Call my sister?ohmy.gifohmy.gifohmy.gif Heavens no! We don't jive. Never have, never will. Don't even know her phone #. If I did she'd likely suck the blood out of me right through the phone receiver.laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

I'll look for lard or spectrum shortening.

Patti --- OH YEAHHHHHH ---- biscuits --- that's going to be the next thing I tackle.

Some people are like lard? Oh no it's animal fat it's all bad for me and I'll die of some horrible disease! I haven't tackled biscuits yet. The idea depresses me to be honest, I'm used to duplicating my grammy's perfect flaky melt-in-your mouth delicacies so maybe I'll just never go there.

I find lard either by the Crisco in the baking aisle or for some bizarre reason some few places have it with the meats. I wouldn't know a thing about spectrum though. Pretty sure if I even thought about buying it I'd be struck by lightning. We don't mess with that sort of thing in my family.

Please keep me posted on that. Biscuits are one of the very few things I have yet to make gluten-free that are as good as the wheat ones. I used to use the soft winter wheat and buttermilk. I've come close but no cigar :D

At least our bodies know what to do with it as opposed to some of the ingredients out there!

Oh yeah! LARD!!!

Hey Squirming- That is what I used for fat, frying meat, and all baking when I had to be low sal!! Isn't that great! And I had to put some fat on my skinny bones at that time too, so I didn't worry about it. The only problem I had was that it has BHT or somesuch preservative in it. I was trying to avoid preservatives, but I decided not to worry about it too much. I just couldn't imagine myself walking into the health food store and asking for organic, hormone and preservative free LARD!!! hahaha :lol: I learned lard makes GREAT French Fries too!

I think I'm gonna try the recipe with lard and rice flour!

Thanks for that tip Adelaide! My son used to love those Hot Pocket things and I am envisioning making him little chicken pot pies with chicken breast, potato, peas and carrot. Little chicken gravy with cornstarch. Oh jeez, I gotta start finding time to cook!!

Happy eating y'all! Oh yum. :D

Hey, try whatever flour makes you happiest! I use rice flour because it's here. I wouldn't use it for dusting a counter though, ick. Six months and I've still only tried one flour blend and I didn't like it. If I had one I liked I'd probably use it for my crusts instead. Lard for french fries? Mmmmmmmmm...... I need to pack some fat on my um, fat?

I make little pot pies in those teeny tiny disposable pie tins. You can do little shepherd's pies too and they freeze wonderfully.

"Can I help you find something?"

"Yes, I'd like the organic and preservative free tallow of one swine please."

:blink:

Congrats, you are now the weirdest person shopping at the health food store! (And I had a person the other day ask me what the pen in the bulk section would write if it were a doll. I smiled and fled.)

Can you say hockey puck? laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif Fried apple hockey pucks anyone?laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

The dough wouldn't hold together w/o cracking or fissures. It simply wasn't pliable. I couldn't get it down to 1/8" thickness. But despite all that I fried them anyway. And they actually didn't taste bad. They were just HARD. And the kitchen was a mess, I was a mess, the floor was a mess.

But they didn't taste bad! See, it's practically a success. Gosh, 1/8"? Crazy! If I was gonna be deep frying some pies I'd want it a bit thicker than that to hold up a little better. I keep my paper thin crusts for in pans. The more you practice the better you'll get at it. It never really gets less messy though.

Here ya go!

I haven't tried it, but I sure do plan to!

Lemme know if it works!!

:)

This recipe resemble mine and I can say that when you follow it, the result is perfect. I'm using the same dough for meat empanadas. My dough isn't hard, it will bake very quickly and will stay soft. You can call it apple pies because they taste like it.

One tip: Work with the small amount of dough (for 4-6 empanadas only)

and before you will roll it out, knead it in your hands to make it more smooth.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
