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.
