Happy Tuesday and Happy New Year folks. Another Christmas in the books and now looking forward to seeing what 2023 has in
store. New Year’s Blessings to all.
If you are like me, you can’t look towards the future without looking back at what brought you where you are. As everyone
knows the past few years for Patti’s were trying to say the least. The fire, covid and then staffing issues. But that old saying still rings true with us today. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. We are living proof of that. When you have a team devoted to the same dream you have the makings of a successful future.
The same can be said for a good recipe. If you have the right ingredients, you can usually turn out something amazing.
For as long as I can remember my momma had the best recipe for fried apple pies. When we had dinner after church her platter of pies were the first to be emptied.
My momma made everything from scratch, right down to her apples. Dried apples to be precise. She would cut up her fresh apples and lay them outside to dry in the summer sun. Then she would add all her sugar and “secret” ingredients. Nobody had dried apples that tasted like mommas.
Fast forward to me in present time. I just don’t have that kind of time. Sad to say but oh so true. So when I want some fried apple pies in a pinch, well let’s just say, where there’s a will, there is a way. And with Patti’s Cinnamon Apple Butter. They help make this way a lot simpler. Not saying these taste like my momma’s, but they are delicious all the same. And when you can make them in just a few minutes, it makes them all the sweeter.
Now for this is the quickest of all the ways to make these little pies. You will need some ready-made pie crusts. A jar of Patti’s Cinnamon Apple Butter, a little sugar some melted butter and a fork.
Unroll your ready–made crust on a cutting board. Using a cup, cut your circles and set them to the side. When you are finished cutting your circles of dough, place about a half tablespoon of the apple butter in the center of the circle. Fold over into a half circle and take your for and seal the edges by pressing into the dough.
Heat your oil in a large, nonstick skillet and place your pies in the hot oil. It only takes a couple minutes on each side for them to become a nice golden brown.
When your pies are fried, place them on a plate, brush them with the melted butter and sprinkle with sugar and enjoy!!!
If you serve them while they are sill hot you may or may not want to add a small scoop of ice cream. Depending on you ability to resist.
Have a great day everybody and I hope you enjoy this quick but tasty recipe.
Until Next Time,
