Easy Peasy Fried Apple Pies

My family just loves these easy fried pies. They are so easy, I almost feel like I am cheating. I use to make these when we had snow days, back in the Midwest. Now, they have become an anytime treat! I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine!

Easy Peasy Fried Apple Pies

Ingredients –

Oil, for frying the pies
2 cans buttermilk biscuits
1 (21-oz) can apple pie filling (or any that you may like!)
1/4 cup sugar (plus more for cinnamon sugar sprinkling)
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon (plus more for cinnamon sugar sprinkling)


Pour your oil into a large skillet, preferably cast iron, about 1/2-inch up the sides and heat to about 350 degrees F. I have used a home deep fryer for these.
Remove the biscuits from cans, on a pastry sheet, flour the biscuits and roll each one out to approximately a 5-inch round. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of your filling on your biscuit round. Be sure to leave about a 1/2-inch edge all around to seal. Place another rolled out biscuit round on top of the filling. Press around the edges to seal. Dip the end of fork in flour and press around your biscuit edge to get a good seal. Repeat with all remaining biscuits. Makes approximately 8 to 10 pies. Place about 3 of the pies in your preheated skillet. Fry biscuits for about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Place fried pies on paper towels to drain. Sprinkle fried pies with cinnamon and sugar.
