    Petdrwife's Note:

    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!

      Oh thank you thank you thank you. My granny made these all the time for every family get-together. We all fought over them and begged to take home the leftovers. When she died, no one had ever been able to duplicate them. I was so excited to find this recipe and ran out and bought the ingredients. They were just like Granny's. I actually cried when I was eating them because it was just like seeing her standing there by that iron skillet smiling at us kids fighting over the pies. I love you for posting this.

      Wow. These ARE old fashioned fried pies. I used dried apricots, and they fulfilled all the fried pie fantasies/memories in this house. The crust also works well w/ prepared pudding pie fillings (like chocolate & coconut cream), jams and marmalade. Thanks so much!

      I updated this to say I have made these a few times now, and recently made them with nice juicy Georgia peaches. Wow! were they good! May 28, 2008 I made these using Macintosh apples instead of the peaches, and they were wonderful! Brought back memories of when I was younger and my mama used to make them when I was little. Thank you for sharing Petdrwife! Cindy
