Fried Apple Pies

Comfort food never tasted so good. Top with vanilla ice cream for an extra special touch.

  • 8 oz. dried apples
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 can (10 ounces) refrigerated biscuits
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • flour, for rolling

Combine apples and water in saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and let cool, mashing slightly if pieces are large. Stir in sugar and butter; set mixture aside. Roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place about 2 tablespoons apple mixture on half of each biscuit circle. To seal pies, dip fingers in water and moisten edges of circles. Fold in half, making sure edges are even. Using a fork dipped in flour, press edges firmly together to seal. Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into a heavy skillet, or use deep fryer. Fry pies in hot oil (370 degrees) over medium-high heat until golden, turning once. Drain well on paper towels.

Makes 10 little pies.
