More Poor Man's Treats...

In today's lesson, I'm gonna tell you how to make a "poor man's fried pie"! And once again, we are gonna use cheap canned biscuits. In case you are wondering why we use the cheap brand, it's because they were on sale for 4 cans for a dollar! My kind of price! Anyway...on to the cooking!

Open the biscuits, pull them out of the can and flatten them out pretty good. Then take the filling of your choice ( I like apple butter!) and slap some in the middle making sure to not get too close to the edge. Fold the dough over and seal the edges by mashing down with the tines of a fork that's been dipped in water (this keeps it from sticking).

Next place some oil in the frying pan ( I use peanut oil) and once it's hot, gently slip the pies into the oil. They brown pretty quickly and if you turn them once they should be ready to come out. Place the pies on a paper towel, sprinkle the top with just a little sugar and cinnamon...and that's it! Be careful when you bite into them cause that hot filling will definitely burn your mouth!

If you eat enough of these, you can be assured to gain a little weight or at least prevent any weight loss! JS wrote a humorous article about that on his blog...you really ought to go check it out!

Well, all this talk about sweets is making me hungry, so I think I'll go and make some fried pies and fresh coffee! Want to join me...??

Hello from the fine state of Kentucky, USA. I have found you via the wonderful blog of blondie, by way of 10DollarsWonder. I had to let you know that you are my kind of man...lol. And, don't get me wrong, I am happily married these past 28+ years...I just can identify so well with your canned biscuits and pop up rants on your blog...so true.
I've been online for about 7 years now, but have really only dabbled in marketing. You could say I've tried almost all the programs out there, and have not yet had much success to speak of. I am happy with the movement of 10DW and am anxious to see what the transfer from e2pay brings.
I will be checking in regularly to see what you're up to in the kitchen as well as online.

Cat...thanks for dropping by! Glad to have a new reader. Kentucky is a beautiful state and I'm sure that spring is going to be great! Glad you are enjoying Blondie's blog and 10DollarsWonder...and really glad you found your way here. Any recipes you want to share for a poor old man, please feel free to do so! BTW...that Blondie is a great gal! Always a good read...I go there daily!

John...the canned biscuits here are usually located in the same cooler as the butter and such. I didn't know they were not available in Canada. Sorry...
