My mother used to make the best fried apple pies you ever ate. We had our own apple trees and mother would dry the fresh apples in the sun and make the pies.
My younger sis, Brenda, made great fried pies, too. This is Brenda’s easy recipe for making mouth watering pies without all the trouble of drying the apples and using canned biscuits for the pie crust. I lost my sister in December 2012 and this recipe always brings back great memories of her Southern cooking.
2 (15 ounce) cans Lucks Fried Apples
1 can Grands biscuits
Crisco for frying the pies
Open apples, drain and pour in bowl. Use a fork cut apples into medium sized pieces. Roll out each individual biscuit on floured board
Fill center of each rolled biscuit with apples. Wet the edges of the dough with water then fold over and crimp with wet fork. Fry in deep skillet in enough oil to float
and turn when brown around edges. Cook until both sides are golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 8 pies.
