A Peachier Turnover

Buttery, flaky pockets of deep-fried fruit are a guaranteed success at any picnic. No utensils needed for these peach-packed, lard-laden mini pies (charmingly known as "hand pies" in the South)—just a hearty napkin to wipe the grease and gooey filling off your cheeks. With nearly 730 calories and 19 grams of saturated fat each, we just had to rescue these treats. We'll show you how we did it.
