Fried apple pies with cranberries, nuts & sauce
Irisa Raina 9
I had more filling than I needed, so later that week I served it over ice cream “ heating it up a wee bit “.
These do not keep well “ they tend to get soggy “ once fried so I only make what I’ll need for that day. You can make them and freeze them, defrosting them before you fry them.
