4 1/2 cups plain or self-rising flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup shortening (or lard)
2 eggs
1 cup milk


3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can (5 ounce size) evaporated milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
lard, shortening or oil for frying
confectioners sugar for dusting, optional


In a bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine eggs and milk; add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. DON'T overmix! Cover and chill several hours.

Filling: In a large bowl, combine ingredients; stir until smooth. Divide dough into 25 portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 5-inch circle. Spoon 2 tablespoons of filling on half of each circle, keeping away from the edges. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal. Prick tops with a fork 4 to 5 times.

In an electric skillet, heat 1/2 inch shortening to 375 degrees F. Fry pies, a few at a time, for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Drain on a rack or on paper towels. Dust with confectioners sugar, if desired. What you don't eat (if any), store in refrigerator.
