1 package dried apples (8 oz)
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 can flaky biscuits--(10 oz)
Vegetable oil

Combine apples and water in saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Cool. Mash slightly if necessary. Stir in sugar and butter; set mixture aside.

Roll each biscuit into a 5 inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place about 2 tablespoons apple mixture on half of each biscuit circle. To seal pies, dip fingers in water and moisten edges of circles. Fold in half, making sure edges are even. Using a fork dipped in flour, press edges firmly together.

Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into deep fryer. Fry pies in hot oil (375 deg.) over medium-high heat on both sides until golden, turning once. Drain well on paper towels.
Yield: 10 turnovers.
