My in house taste tester LOVES apple pie! I am still scared to make my own pie dough (I know I have issues!) so I decided to try something a little easier.
These fried pies are CRAZY good and dangerously easy. A can of pie filling and some biscuit dough, that is way way too easy.
What you need,
1 can Pillsbury biscuits (12 pack)
1 can apple pie filling (or any flavor you like, cherry is up next for me)
1 cup canola oil
½ cup granulated sugar
1 heaping tsp. ground cinnamon
Let the can of biscuit dough sit on the counter for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle a little flour onto the counter and roll each biscuit out to a 4-5 inch round. Place 2 teaspoons of pie filling in the centre of each dough round. Fold over to make a half moon shape. Crimp the edges of the dough really well with a fork to seal the pies up.
Once the pies are all ready, heat the oil in a pan over medium high heat to 325 degrees.
Fry 3-4 pies at a time. They brown up really quick so watch them close. You want to try to cook them at least 30 seconds per side so that the dough cooks all the way through. Adjust the heat as needed so the pies don’t brown too quickly.
Remove the pies to a wire rack over some paper towel to drain. Continue to fry the pies in batches until they are all cooked.
In a bowl stir together the sugar and cinnamon.
Carefully roll the fried pies around in the sugar until they are well coated. Place the pies back on the rack to cool.
Go ahead and eat one as soon as you can, they are soooooooo good hot‼ They are really good cold too. I warmed up the left overs in the microwave for a few seconds and topped them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Now you really have some something‼
These pies got 2 thumbs up from my in house taste tester. They are so perfect! Any pie filling would be fabulous, even your favourite jam would be amazing!
Be warned they are dangerous!
