To make the crust, cut shortening into flour and salt, until it looks like meal. Add enough water so that it holds together, but no more than necessary. Roll out as you would for a pie crust, and cut into 9-inch circles.
Mix all of the filling ingredients, seasoning to taste. Put about 1 1/2 cups of the fill mixture on half of each circle. Fold in half, and make sure the edges are secure. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
