Pocket Pies

I’m very, very excited because this is my guest post for the Texas Farm Bureau! They have a brand new site, Texas Table Top, which celebrates all the great food, places and people that the Lone Star State has to offer. Here is a delicious recipe, easily formed into any shape, pop tarts, pocket pies, or even try cookie cutters!
  Flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Butter-flavored shortening 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chilled
  Milk 1 1⁄8 Cup (18 tbs), chilled
  Jam 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (any fruit flavour)
  Fruit 1 Cup (16 tbs), diced (fruit of your choice)
For glaze
  Powdered sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Milk 2 Tablespoon

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. In a food processor, place together flour, baking powder and shortening, cut the shortening into the flour by processing until the mixture reaches coarse texture.
3. Gently stream in cold milk, while still mixing the flour mixture and mix until it forms into a ball.
4. Separate the dough and make in to 3 balls, wrap each ball in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5. In a bowl, mix together, powdered sugar, a little milk, and vanilla to make a glaze, and set aside.
6. In a bowl, mix together jam and diced fruit, set aside

7. On a floured surface place the dough, flatten it and dust with flour.
8. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to get even shape and thickness.
9. Using a cookie cutter or round bowl, cut the dough, use the leftover to make dough again.
10. On a greased baking sheet, place the dough circles, leaving some space between two circles.
11. Place a spoonful of filling, in the centre of the each dough, run a wet finger over the edges of the pie circle, fold the pie circle in half.

12. Dip a fork in water and crimp the edges to seal tightly.
12. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or they get golden colour on top.
13. Remove the pies out from oven and allow to cool.

14. Spread the glaze over the pies and serve.

You can use pastry cutter or fork to cut the shortening instead of using the food processer.
