1 c. chopped dried peaches
1 c. chopped dried apples
3/4 c. sugar
dash of salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 T. butter
vegetable oil

2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. milk, approximate

Filling:Combine peaches and apples in enough water to cover in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until fruit is tender. Stir in next four ingredients.
Pastry: Combine flour, salt and baking powder; cut in shortening until resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle milk gradually over flour mixture, stirring lightly until mixture forms a ball. Divide pastry dough into 7 balls; roll each to 1/4" thickness on waxed paper; cut into 6" circles.
Assembly: Spoon about 2 T. fruit mixture onto half of each circle. To seal pies, dip fingers into water and moisten edges of circles; fold in half making sure edges are even. Using a fork dipped in flour, press pastry edges firmly together. Heat 1/2" oil in frying pan to 375. Cook pies until golden brown on both sides, turning only once. Drain on paper towels.
