I have NEVER made this, at least not yet, but the recipe brings back wonderful memories of sitting around Gram's tiny kitchen eating her warm fried pies. I liked the peach ones best - she made those from dried peaches. You know, losing someone special to you is awful, but losing those recipes that are stored in her heart, is a special loss too. So, for my Gram, here you go! Her famous fried pie dough!

How to Make Fried Pie Dough


  1. Using a fork or a dough blender, combine flour and crisco, working into a cornmeal stage. Add enough cold water to make a sticky dough. Roll out in flour and roll into a square. I have no idea how many this makes.

    This dough needs to be a tough dough, so you can fry it and it will hold together.
  2. Roll into squares, put fruit mixture in middle, fold and seal edges with a fork and drop into hot Crisco until nice and golden brown.
  3. Gram always used her iron skillet to make these. I remember peach, apple and raisin. Makes my mouth water just to think about them.

    Good Luck!
