Quick Camping Pies

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

Fried pies made to order at the campsite. I always take a variety of fillings for these pies. What ever is leftover goes on top of pancakes or french toast the next morning as does the powdered sugar!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit
  • 1 can pie filling, your choice
  • oil (for frying)
  • powdered sugar


  1. Pat each biscuit flat with your fingers.
  2. Place about 1 TBS filling on half of each biscuit.
  3. Fold over and seal edges.
  4. Fry in skillet in about 1/2 inch oil, until brown on both sides.
  5. This works good in a cast iron skillet over the campfire, but works just as well on the grill or the stove.
  6. Drain slightly and roll in powdered sugar.

these were good. instead of pie filling, we used a mixture of cinnamon & brown sugar. when they were done we dipped them in melted butter & they tasted like a cinnamon bun!

I made these last summer while camping with friends and all our children. Everyone loved them.
