Comment on Amish Fry Pies by Loretta.
Hard to believe that these humble pies are making such a big splash!
Growing up, they were always around, usually fried apple pies or fried peach pies, depending on which fruit you had-with apple probably being the most popular.
I think, probably as women made biscuits for their meals, they made enough dough to make the pies. They probably already had the fruit, so it was an economical desert to make-almost cost-free.
Today, there is nothing better than a fried apple pie–but it’s become almost a “lost recipe”. That’s why, when I find them, I buy extras. And it makes me SO nostalgic and teary-eyed for my mom, whom I lost two weeks ago. I should have learned more from her on the old ways of making things.
