Fried Apple Pies

My cooked apples before they go in fried pies or on top of ice cream

Today a customer requested a recipe for fried apple pies.  I love making them, but don’t really follow a recipe. I did an internet search and found a good recipe from the Food Network that makes an easy version. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/apple-fried-pies-recipe/index.html#!

I know a lot of you southern cooks have your favorite recipes for fried pies. Please share your recipe in the “Comments” here.

I like to use a combination of Granny Smith or Jonathan apples with Golden Delicious. Dried apples are also good for making these pies. Sometimes I make my own crust instead of using the refrigerated flaky biscuits, but the biscuit dough makes it very easy. I know a lot of our customers use the refrigerated dough.

When my daughter, Jennifer, was in college at New York University, she often had apples and other fruit from Crow Mountain Orchard delivered by one of her grandmother’s friends. She would make a skillet of fried apples then use them as filling in a flour tortilla folded in half and fried in some butter to make an easy fried pie.
