Peach Fried Pies

Cecelia Huddleston


My Grandmother always used dried fruit for the filling. Since I couldn't find the dried fruit at the supermarket, I decided to used canned peaches. Fortunately, it worked out well.

1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt
1 stick butter, softened
1 1/4 cups evaporated milk


1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk or cream
1/4 teaspoon almond extract


1 cup cinnamon chips
1 tablespoon shortening

How to Make Peach Fried Pies


  • 1Drain the peaches, reserving the syrup. Using a fork or potato masher, mash the peaches; set aside. In a heavy medium saucepan, combine sugars, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the reserved syrup; mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened. Add the butter and lemon juice; then the peaches. Refrigerate until the filling is chilled or overnight.
  • 2Dough: Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut in butter. Add the milk and stir until a soft dough forms.
  • 3The dough can be made into balls and then rolled out on a floured surface to make 5-6" circles. Also, on a floured surface, the dough can be rolled out to 1/8" thick and then cut out 5-6" circles. (My Grandmother used a saucer to cut out the circles).
  • 4Spoon 2 generous tablespoons of filling in the center of the dough, fold and crimp the edges. Be sure the edges are sealed so the filling won't leak. Fill a heavy skillet with about an inch of oil and heat to 360 degrees. Place two or three pies in the hot oil; but do not overcrowd it. Fry until golden brown on each side. Drain the pies on paper towels. Place warm pies on wire rack and glaze.
  • 5Combine powdered sugar, milk and almond extract. Drizzle over warm pies. Then combine cinnamon chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Melt the mixture stirring at 15 second intervals. Drizzle over the powdered sugar glaze, if desired.
