Fried pies are an essential part of any traditional southern summer. They are most often stuffed with strawberries, but also work well with blueberries and blackberries. But fried peach pies are by far my favorite dessert. The filling for today’s dish is either a handmade apple or peach pie, which is then wrapped in pastry and baked until it reaches the ideal flaky texture. To provide a one-of-a-kind and delectable sweet treat alternative, the pies are topped off with a coating of cinnamon sugar.
These fried pies are not as difficult to make as they seem, particularly if you are familiar with making pie dough and frying food. However, their appearance may give the impression that they are difficult to make. You may also take the easy way out and use a pie crust that you got from the supermarket if you really want to. They will still have a delectable flavor. I spent my childhood eating fried apple pie from McDonald’s, and I have to say that the recipe for this handmade version is MUCH more delicious than the one used at the restaurant! The topping of cinnamon sugar is what truly puts these pies in a league of their own.
