I fell in love with deep fried hand pies as a kid travelling with my family to or place in Florida. I had commercially made ones from lots of convenience stores and they were an ooey gooey delight. A few years ago on one of our trips to a BBQ competition I had a homemade hand pie. Its ragged edges super crispy and flakey. The filling wasn’t overly sweet and was packed full of fruits.

On our recent trip to the Jack I missed having Mary Ruth’s Fried Pies while we we there. When I came home I knew I was going to have to attempt making these.

There was one problem with all of this. I seriously have an inability to make really great pie crust. So… I opted out of that step altogeher and bought these.

Then for the recipe…

I went here… Emeril Lagasse Fried Apple Pie Recipe http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/fried-apple-pies-recipe/index.html


I made the filling the day before Halloween. Then on Halloween night I assembled the pies and followed the instructions for deep frying.

They came out awesome.

Super flaky not too sweet and uber easy to make.

I may not ever go back to making a regular pie again. …. Enjoy.
