  2. My grandmother used to make these for me from home canned apples. No glaze or anything. Boy was I in heaven. Mom never learned how but I swore to myself I'd make them for my kids. Never did. Then again, I'm a guy, so...

    1. I’m a guy too. I cook, grill, smoke and , the horror, bake. Get thyself into yon kitchen and treat your kids. (and yourself!)

  3. p2 I am the cook in the family. I make some mighty fine meals. I found women tend to skimp on seasonings. I don't. If I'm making something needs some kick I want kick like by b.que sauce. I like old time meals like real pot roast, beef stew what's a stump blower nothing frozen. I can also crank out a mean beef stroganoff, chicken alfredo fettucine and the list goes on and on. Pie? I make em with lard same as my breads. I don't do yuppy cooking at all. On a blue moon when my wife and I eat out I hear every time, yours is better.

  4. When I was a kid in East Tennessee, there was a lady named Granny Bivens who would bring fried apple pies to church for the kids about once a month. Nearly 50 years later and I can still remember how good those were. And Becky at Hillbilly Kitchen is a treasure.

    1. I agree that Becky is a treasure. I've learned how to cook a lot of southern dishes because of her.

  6. I had a bunch of egg roll wrappers left over. Solution? Open a couple of cans of apple pie filling, drain off and save 75% of the juice, load and roll the wrappers and deep fry. Drizzle saved juice over them and some powdered sugar (if you want) and serve.

  7. 60+ years ago when we were heading back North (don't judge, that's where the jobs were) after visiting kinfolk and killing rabbits, my father made sure to stop and pick up some fried pies. Those times were probably the most animated I've ever seen him. Oh, man, who woulda thought a stupid pastry would make me get choked up. I'll hafta try making some myself before everything goes to heck in the US of A. (oops, wasn't trying to be anonymous- blame the computer)

  8. My Mamaw has been gone for more than 40 years and I miss her fried peach and apple pies more than I can express.
