But not just any plain ol’ fried apple pies recipe, THE BEST fried apple pies recipe made completely homemade from scratch.
Because, just like my 3-Ingredient Biscuits, Easy Poptarts, and Best EVER Chocolate Chip Cookies, some things are just better made homemade!
When it comes to these fried apple pies, I truly believe that you don’t want to cut any corners by using canned biscuits or pre-made pastry dough.
These homemade, old-fashioned, Amish-style fried apple pies feature a tender, flaky, buttery, made-from-scratch pie crust, a cinnamon sugar apple pie filling, and a sweet powdered sugar glaze that looks similar to Mcdonald’s fried apple pies, but are WAY better.
These fried apple pies are insanely delicious, and best of all they’re SUPER easy to make!
Homemade Fried Apple Pies Recipe
My old fashioned fried apple pies have three main components – a buttery pie crust that’s made from scratch, a perfectly sweet/tart apple pie filling, and a powdered sugar glaze that makes these pies delicious and beautiful!
What is the easiest way to fry these fried apple hand pies?

If you’re short on space or don’t deep fry a lot, go with a dutch oven pot, but if you frequently deep fry foods, this 4-quart deep fryer is the best!
Both of these methods will help you achieve perfectly golden, flaky, and delicious fried apple pies.
