Ever since getting a bad grease burn in a samosa frying incident I have been pretty scared of deep frying. But lately I have been attempting to conquer my fears. And overcoming fear so you can enjoy deep fried apple pies might just be one of the noblest pursuits there is. OK, maybe that’s a slight overstatement. But, my friends, these things are really good. I’m afraid that from now on pies that haven’t been deep fried will seem lacking.
I modeled them after the classic McDonald’s recipe. Because those things were seriously good. And so are these. The crust is substantial enough for a hand pie, but it’s also light, buttery, and flaky. The filling is classic, and while the apples are pre-cooked, they still have fantastic apple-y texture.
I highly recommend that you give them a shot.
