Apricot and Peach Fried Pies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 5)
Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2003
My Grandmother used to make these pies every Thanksgiving and Christmas and they always symbolized the holidays for me. She called them Washington Pies (probably because we are from the Mt. Vernon, VA area). She also had an applesauce filling that noone has been able to duplicate. But, not being one to have a lot of time on my hands, I have made a pretty good "quick" version of this. I use pre-made pie crusts, all natural & thick raspberry or apricot preserves, and crisco is a MUST for the frying. They assemble pretty fast which is important because as soon as you sprinkle them with powdered sugar, they disappear! I enjoyed very much Elaine's recipe and hope she doesn't mind I added mine!

One of the recipes my Great Grandmother brought with her in a covered wagon to California was for Apricot Fried Pies. My recipe was noted that it was her Great-Great Grandmothers recipe! I have made these for years for my children and now, grandchildren. These are wonderful to take on picnics.

They were a bit too greasy for my taste, but the filling was nice. I had a hard time getting the fruit to fall apart, so I finally just cut it up.

This was an answer to my prayers really because when I was small I would eat my great aunt's fried peach pie's and since adulthood I could never quite get it right and even though there is the addition of apricots, the flavor is there and the texture is right on. I'm very happy with the recipe. thanks, Amber

This is one of the best fried pie recipes I have ever tried. I especially like the crust, because most fried pie crust isn't flaky, and this one is. I recently made them to take on a trip, and they also travel well.
