I'd love a recipe for fried pie crust and some instructions. My Auntie used to make them but sadly her filling was raisin and I just have never like raisins. This Auntie passed away this last year so I can't retrieve the recipe from her. *sigh*
I use Paula Deen's recipe and our family loves the pies. Of course you could make your own crust but the biscuit works great. In a rush you can also use apple pie filling. :>)
Fried Apple pies (Paula Deen)
Recipe courtesy Paula DeenPrep Time: 15 min Inactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time: 40 min Level: Easy: 8 servings Ingredients2 tablespoons butter 4 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced, or 1 can apple pie filling 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 (8-piece) container refrigerated flaky biscuit dough 2 tablespoons water Powdered sugar DirectionsFilling: 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.
Preheat deep-fryer with oil to 350 degrees F.
Carefully add the pies to the oil, 1 at a time, and fry until golden brown, turning the pies as necessary for even browning, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar immediately
Blessed are those that can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
I got this recipe many years ago from cook book author & chef David Wade. He is from the Tyler,Tx area & used to host a radio show in the area. All of his recipes that I've tried have been good. If you try this, let us know how you like it. Brenda

Knead 6-8 minutes until smooth and elastic then place in a greased bowl turning once to grease top. Let rise til double in size; about 1 hour. Punch dough down.
