Origin of Fried Apple Or Peach Pies

Fried Apple Or Peach Pies are a Southern classic. They’re usually made with fresh peaches or apples, but you can also use canned fruit. The key to making a good fried pie is getting the filling just right so it’s not too runny or thick.
There are two schools of thought when it comes to the crust.

Some people prefer a traditional pie crust, while others prefer a biscuit-like dough. I’ve included recipes for both so you can choose your favorite. No matter what type of crust you choose, the key to a good fried pie is to ensure the filling is thick enough so it doesn’t run out when you bite it. And be sure to fry the pies long enough, so the crust is nice and golden brown.

Tips & Tricks for making Fried Apple Or Peach Pies

When frying apple or peach pies, you can do a few things to ensure that your pies come out perfectly.
First, make sure that your oil is at the right temperature. If it’s too hot, the pies will cook too quickly on the outside and be raw in the middle. If it’s not hot enough, the pies will absorb too much oil and be greasy. The best way to test the temperature is to stick a wooden spoon into the oil. If it sizzles, then it’s ready.
Next, be careful not to overcrowd the pan. This will lower the temperature of the oil and make it more difficult to get evenly cooked pies. So, fry in batches if necessary.
Finally, drain your pies on a wire rack or paper towels before serving. This will help eliminate excess oil and keep your pies from becoming greasy.

Recipe by Alexandra Jo


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 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


  • In saucepan, combine together apples and water then bring to a boil. Make sure to cover, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes. Once done, remove from heat and let cool, mashing slightly if pieces are large. Then you may stir in sugar and butter; set mixture aside.
  • For the filling: If using fresh apples, you should add 2 TBS of butter to a large saute pan and melt. Immediately add 4 peeled, cored and chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tsp lemon juice together and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Next, remove from the heat, mash slightly and cool.
  • Now please roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle on a lightly floured surface, then place about 1 tablespoon apple mixture on half of each biscuit circle. Make sure to dip fingers in water and moisten edges of circles to seal pies. Remember to, fold in half, making sure edges are even, then press edges firmly together with a fork dipped in flour to seal.
  • When finished, pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into a heavy skillet, or use deep fryer. Then immediately fry pies in hot oil (370°) over medium-high heat until golden, turning once. Make sure not to rush it because you want the biscuit cooked completely through.
  • Finally, drain well on paper towels. This should make 10 pies.
