This is my mother's recipe. Since my cousins remember her for her delicious fried pies at family reunions I named these Aunt Helen's. She also made fried apple pies.

If you grew up watching your mom make fried pies, then these fried peach pies will bring back memories. Aunt Helen's are delicious! The sweet, warm, peach center is the perfect match for the soft and crunchy biscuit crust. We sprinkled ours with a little bit of powdered sugar to make it special. We can't wait to try other fillings.

How To Make aunt helen's fried peach pies

  • Water, sugar, salt, and dried peaches in a saucepan.
    1
    Combine the first four ingredients in 2 qt heavy sauce pan. Bring to boil. Stirring occasionally.
  • Boiling peach mixture.
    2
    Boil for about 30 minutes on med/high heat then reduce heat to medium. Stirring occasionally.
  • Mashing cooked peaches.
    3
    Continue to boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 30 more minutes. As peaches become tender and syrup begins to thicken, mash and cut peaches with a spoon until they become like pie filling.
  • Rolling out biscuits.
    4
    Roll out biscuits on a floured surface to about a 5 inch oval shape (I use parchment because it won't stick).
  • Peach filling on top of a biscuit and closing the biscuit.
    5
    Fill the dough with about 1 1/2 tablespoon of cooled filling. Fold over and crimp and seal edges.
  • Frying the biscuit.
    6
    Fry in skillet with about 1/2 inch deep (hot) Crisco. Fry on med/low heat 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Fry 2-3 pies at a time.
  • Fried pies on a paper towel.
    7
    Remove to absorbent paper towels.
