Southern Fried Apple Pies

If you take a drive along our beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway
and start getting a craving for something yummy it won't take you
long to find yourself a
Fried Apple Pie.
The best things in life are simple and so is this little treat. 
You will get a good taste of southern home cookin' with a Fried Apple Pie. 

Let's make ourselves some Fried Pies.

To get started you will want to make a batch of pie crust.

Set your crust aside and will fry up our apples.

Now we need to fry up some apples.
When I fry apples:
1. I  peel & slice my apples into thin discs.

2.  I prefer a iron skillet when frying apples. I just cover the bottom of my skillet with water place my apples in skillet, add a sprinkle of salt, dob butter or margarine all a top my apples, 
cover with brown sugar and cinnamon. I really don't measure; I just eyeball it. 

3. Cook apples medium-high heat. Stirring often until apples are cooked down.
By that I mean cooked down tender and syrupy but not turned to 
applesauce or mush.

It's time to put this together and fry 'em up.
1. Roll out you pie crust. I'm going to use a large biscuit cutter
 but you can cut out you discs with a large cup or saucer

2. Heat 1/2 inch to 1 inch of oil in a pan on medium-high heat.
3. Take one pie crust, roll a little thinner, add about 2 heaping spoons of apples.
Fold over and mash ends together. 
If your crust is a little dry wet it with your finger.
You can also use a fork to really close it good.

4. Place in hot oil.

Turn in about 1-2 minutes. Cook another minute or two.
Remove and repeat until you're out of apples and crust.

That's all she wrote.
