This recipe has a story...Mrs. Neely was a school teacher and I was helping care for her elderly husband. Now, I was a Northerner who had only been in Tennessee for a very short time, upon arriving for work one morning there was a note on the counter, " Mr. Neely would like fried peach pies for breakfast." What?....I had never even heard of fried pies...Panic, find a cookbook fast!!! Well, the results were wonderful. I never did tell Mrs. Neely that that was my first attempt at making fried pies. The following is the recipe I used that day and have been using every since.
