    FOR THE FILLING: In a large saucepan, combine the
    persimmons and sugar. Add enough water to cover the
    fruit. Cover the pan and cook over low heat until the
    fruit is falling apart. Remove the lid and continue to
    cook until the water is evaporated. Add the butter and
    lemon juice; mix well. Set aside.

    FOR THE PIE DOUGH: In a large bowl, mix together the
    flour, sugar and salt. Using a pastry cutter or fork,
    cut in the lard until the mixture is crumbly. Mix in the
    milk and stir until the dough forms a ball. Roll out the
    dough very thin and cut into eighteen 10" circles.

    Spoon equal amounts of the filling into each pastry
    circle and fold in half. Seal the pastry with a fork
    dipped in cold water.

    Place the clarified butter in a small high-sided
    skillet. Place over medium heat. Fry a few pies at a
    time, browning on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain the
    pies on paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with granulated

    Yield: 18 pies
