Southern Fried Peach Pies
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!
- Ready In:
- 1hr 50mins
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup Crisco
- 6 ounces dried peaches
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- oil (for frying)
- Place flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
- Cut in crisco with pastry cutter or fork.
- Add enough milk to make dough, do not mix too much.
- Let biscuit dough sit for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile take dried peaches and put in sauce pan with enough water to cover and cook until soft.
- Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cook 15 minuts more.
- Remove from stove and mash with potato masher; set aside.
- Preheat electric skillet to 300 degrees.
- Take biscuit dough and pull enough off for one pie, roll it out thin on floured board. Take a saucer, place on rolled out dough and trim around it with a sharp knife.
- Place two big spoons of peaches on one side of dough and lap the other side over in half moon shape. Seal the edges with a fork.
- Fry pies in skillet until brown, then turn and brown other side.
- Drain on paper towels.
- These pies can be eaten warm or stored in a container and eaten the next day room temperature they are awesome either way.
