contest winner icon


  • canned biscuits
  • apple butter or applesauce* (fruit of choice)
  • vegetable oil
  • flour any kind

*Two cups applesauce, mix Tbsp. of cinnamon and 1/4 cup brown sugar or leave applesauce plain.



Roll out canned biscuit dough on a plate lightly dusted with flour. Take 1 1/2 teaspoon fruit on rounded dough. Fold over fruit, twist edges closed.

Put oil in wide skillet, heat oil to boiling point without smoking, turn down if smoking. Be careful! Do not walk off and leave alone. Lightly brown on one side then flip over on medium heat, 2 minutes each side. Put a paper towel on a plate. Put fruit pies on plate to drain.

Be careful! They will be hot. Refrigerate any left over. They are good cold or room temperature. They can be frozen for later and microwaved.

My mom made them when I was just a tyke (I'm 46 now), her mother made them before her and great grandma made them also. Mom use to also fry the biscuits whole and called it simply "fried dough". She would then shake them in powdered sugar. YUMMY!
