This is a recipe from my Great Grandmother. I can remember going to her house and sitting down to a lunch of Fried chicken, mash potatoes, green beans, fried corn, biscuits and fried peach pies for dessert. It is a wonder we didn't all die from heart disease but that is country living. These directions were written for me real countryfied so I explained best I could but you will get the jist. Make dough, fill it and fry it!
