Easy Fried Pies Recipe

We all have those days…too much to do, not enough time. Seems like lately, I find myself in that situation more than I’d like to admit. With more than 225 simplified recipes, Simple Shortcut Recipes, a new Gooseberry Patch Cookbook is full of delicious recipes for days just like these.

I remember growing up, when my parents would take us camping, my Mom always made little pies over the campfire that she called Puckies. When I spotted the recipe for these Easy Fried Pies, it reminded me of fun times we had camping. And after cooking up a batch and giving them a try…I was reminded even more.

Doug thought they tasted like elephant ears, and even though my two oldest boys don’t like cherries all that much, they liked these Fried Pies.

With just a few ingredients, you can whip these babies up in no time! Let me show you how easy they are…

Step 1:

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out biscuits until they are thin, about 4-5 inches

Step 2:

  • Add about 2 tablespoons filling to the middle, fold over and seal with a fork

Step 3:

  • Time to fry them up until golden brown and give them a little sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar

Simple Shortcut Recipes is jam packed with breakfast, soup, salads, sandwiches, sides, express dinners, easy entertaining and of course desserts.

    I have used this recipe for about 30 years now. My mother in law showed it to me. Have also used preserves for the filling. Also, I have used canned crescent rolls for the crust with wonderful results.
