For the Dough:
Mix all the ingredients together. Let sit for 4 minutes to thicken. Now roll your dough with a rolling pin till 1/4 inch thick. Use the top of a medium sized drinking glass to cut out circles from the dough. put the circles on a cookie sheet and place to the side for later.
Take 5 Granny Smith apples, cored, sliced. put the apple slices into a mixing bowl. Add Lemon juice and sugar, and mix with a spoon.
Now take a medium sized saucepan at medium heat. Put your apple mixture into the pan. cook the apples for 8 minutes. Now, add the 1/2 cup canned pumpkin into the pan, and stir. Let cook for another 3 minutes on simmer. Remove the pan from the stove, and put the apple mix back into the mixing bowl for cooling.
Now pull your dough circles back out. press each circle down and flatten more to thin out. Take some of the apple mix and put on each dough circle. Only use 1/2 your apple mix, the other half will be used as a topping. Now, fold the dough circles in half and use a fork or spoon to close them shut.
Now heat some vegetable oil in a pan on medium. now add your apple filled dough circles into the hot oil and fry for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from heat, put apple filled dough onto a paper towel to cool. About 10 minutes. Now, put your apple filled dough into a cake pan. Take your remaining Apple mix and pour on top of your Pump-Apple Fried Critter-Pies.
