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...??
