These Old Fashioned Fried Apple Pies are the perfect snack, dessert, breakfast and more for any time you have a taste for all things apple!
Kayla and I started making Fried Apple Pies years ago after we visited the apple orchard one time. I think she was in Kindergarten. We had purchased one to share and immediately fell in love with the taste and texture of a fried apple pie.
I looked around and found several recipes, tried them out, and then used those to create my own version. We love these any time of the year and they are super quick to make up!
How to Make Old Fashioned Southern Fried Apple Pies
Let your pie dough come to room temperature and then roll it out. I used a 4″ biscuit cutter to cut mine, making smaller hand pies, but you can use a bowl to get a bigger sized pie.
Don’t overload your rounds or your apple mixture will ooze out. Now, take your pie round and fold it over and crimp the edges using a fork.
Also — and this is important, make sure your oil temperature is at 350 degrees. If not, your pie dough will soak up the oil making them soggy instead of crisp and flaky.
Once you get your pies made, be sure and let them drain on paper towels before sprinkling them with a cinnamon sugar mix (I am loving the Adams Extract Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar mix).
