Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 (8-piece) container refrigerated flaky biscuit dough
Directions

For the filling: Add the butter to a large saute pan and melt. Add the apples, sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice and cook over medium heat until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.

When the filling is cool, roll the biscuits out on a lightly floured surface so that each biscuit forms a 7 to 8-inch circle. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling on 1/2 of each circle. Brush the edges of the circle with water. Fold the circle over the filling to make a half-moon shapes. Seal by pressing the edges with the tines of a fork.

Heat a deep fryer or a deep pot halfway filled with oil to 350 degrees F.

Carefully add the pies to the oil, 1 at a time, and fry until golden brown, turning the pies as necessary for even browning, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar immediately.

Very tasty, but obviously I shouldn't be in the kitchen. First I cut myself peeling the apples, then I burnt my knuckle when I accidently caused a grease splash. The only problem I had with the actual recipe is that I ended up with extra filling and had to use a second can of biscuit dough. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are a fast and great dessert, Of course, we use sugar subs and they come out just as good. I think everything is better fried. I use coconut oil and have actually lost weight since switching to it and hubby too. Go figure! Love you Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were AWESOME Paula! And super easy to cook! Thanks Paula! Missing you much on the food network!!!!!!!!!!!!! Btw, I also made icing to go with these pies! YUM!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I went to my local orchard in October and found some Mitsu apples, a mix between a Japanese apple and a Granny Smith. I fried them in coconut oil, which made these outstanding. They turn out crisp, light, divine, and non greasy. A taste of heaven here on earth! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Outstanding!!! But, I did not fry them. I placed them on a cookie sheet that I had lightly sprayed with cooking spray and baked them in a pre-heated 375° oven for about 12 minutes. I also used brown sugar and a little less than the recipe called for. I made a small recipe yesterday, but they are gone. They were so good I’m making more for today. I used Granny Smith apples. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mouth watering....:!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I read that so many had raw inside so I cut open the first one. It was more than done on the outside but uncooked dough inside,so I browned the rest and then baked for 15 min. I think the oil was too hot, and the dough not thin enough.They got eaten but it wont be a favorite of the cook. item not reviewed by moderator and published
YUK!This recipe is in no way like the Amish Fried Pies-I will never make them again-I live in the amish community of Sugarcreek, Ohio. item not reviewed by moderator and published
By the way, this isn't my first time in the kitchen, I just usually don't fry anything, and I don't peel my apples, so I wasn't used to either of those elements. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you for posting that you baked them, I was wondering if you could without it ruining them, Thanks again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
