Southern Fried Peach Pies

Southern Fried Peach Pies


  • 4 cups Dried peaches
  • 2 cups Water
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Sheet of prepared pastry
  • Vegetable oil
  • Extra sugar for sprinkling pies


  1. Combine peaches and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer about 30 minutes or until tender. Cool and mash slightly, if necessary. Stir in ½ cup sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Divide pastry into thirds and roll each portion to ¼ inch thickness on wax paper. Cut into 5 inch circles. Place about 2 tablespoons peaches mixture on half of each pastry circle.
  3. Seal pies, by dipping your fingers in water, and moisten edges of pastry circles; fold circles in half, making sure edges are even. Press edges of filled pastry firmly together using a fork dipped in flour.
  4. Heat ½ inch of oil to 375°F in a large skillet. Fry pies until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Drain well on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar while warm, but not real hot.
