Everybody loves them! And they are simple to make.
These fried apple pies are made with refrigerated biscuits and dried apples/peaches. You can make your own biscuit dough or simply use refrigerated biscuits. If you make a double or triple batch to take to a gathering you will be the hit of the day!
*The trick is making sure you get a good seal at the edge and donâ€™t poke holes in them as you move them around. Donâ€™t fry them too fast or the inside wonâ€™t get done.
These fried apple pies are a McDonaldâ€™s copycat recipe that feature a homemade apple pie filling encased in pastry and deep fried to flaky perfection. The pies are finished off with a dusting of cinnamon sugar for a unique and delicious dessert option.
I grew up eating fried apple pie at McDonaldâ€™s, and I have to say, this homemade version is WAY better than the restaurant recipe! The addition of cinnamon sugar really takes these pies over the top.
8 ounces dried apples or dried peaches
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 tsp. cinnamon or apple pie spice
1 can jumbo refrigerated flaky biscuits
vegetable oil, for frying
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.
If using fresh apples: For the filling: Add 2 TBS butter to a large saute pan and melt. Add 4 peeled, cored and chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tsp lemon juice and cook over medium heat until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, mash slightly and cool.)
Roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place about 1 tablespoon 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 (370Â°) over medium-high heat until golden, turning once. Donâ€™t rush it because you want to make sure the biscuit is cooked completely through.
Drain well on paper towels.
Makes 10 pies.
