This fried apple pies is a delicious treat. In the country we fry just about anything that can be cooked or baked! We love fried food! If there is a way to fry something we will figure it out! After frying these sweet treats we top with a little powdered sugar to make them even tastier than they already are!
Filling: Add the butter to a large saute pan and melt. Add the apples, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.
When the filling is cool, roll the biscuits out on a lightly floured surface so that each biscuit forms a 7 to 8-inch circle. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling on each biscuit circle. Brush the edges of the circle with water. Fold the circle over the filling to make a half-moon shape. Seal by pressing the edges with the tines of a fork.
Fry in a skillet, with about 1/2 inch of hot oil, until browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with granulated sugar or dust with powdered sugar while still warm, if desired. Best served warm, but delicious cold too!. Drain on paper towels.
Fried Apple Pies are great treats!
To Bake These Fried Apple Pies, I know, they will no longer be Fried!
To Bake: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the pies on a greased cookie sheet or pan. Make a couple of small slits in the dough so the steam will vent out, brush the tops with the juice from the pan or with an egg wash over each pie if desired, and sprinkle tops with a bit of granulated sugar. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Note: Pie filling can be canned apples or apples sauce if you do not have apples readily available.
