    make them up and freeze them without cooking. Then if you have a deep fryer, drop them in the hot oil til brown. If you cook them in an iron skillet they handle easier frozen..just keep an eye on them!!! My Mother cans apples with a little vinegar in the summer then makes fried pies every week through the winter, until the apples run out. She taught me to freeze them first.

    I get recipes from all over, friends send them to me, some on recipe Usenet newsgroups , some from newspapers and cookbooks,etc. etc. -so often I don't get the original sources for every single recipe that I may post

    I do beleive people undertstand that.

    I post to share and when I do have the source I normally post it. !!

    so, if you add a link source, thank you!

    These sound just great! Can you use fresh fruit instead of dried fruit? I can't wait to make a batch of these this week! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Yummy! Homemade ones are the best. Haven't had these in years. My hubby always talks about his Grannys Apple fried pies and how good they were. She dried the apples herself on the porch. That was a long time ago. Will save this one for sure.
