HOW TO MAKE FRIED APPLE OR PEACH PIES
Step 1: In a saucepan, combine the apples with water. Bring to a boil, then, decrease the heat. Simmer for about 30 minutes. covered, until tender.
Step 2: When tender, remove from the heat and allow to cool. You may need to slightly mash the larger pieces. Add in the sugar and butter. Mix well and set aside.
Step 3: If you are gonna use fresh apples, melt 2 tablespoons butter into a large saute pan. When melted add 4 peeled, cored, and chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat until the apples are soft. Remove the pan from the heat, then, slightly mash, and let it cool.
Step 4: On a lightly floured surface, roll the biscuits into a 5-inch circle.
Step 5: Dip your fingers in water and moisten the edges of each circle to seal the pies. Fold them in half and make sure that the edges are even.
Step 6: Firmly press the edges to seal with a fork dipped in flour.
