The secret to delicious fried apple pie
These beauty secrets are the best apples! So you need to choose firm apples that are perfectly ripe, not overripe. Another way to enhance this deliciousness is to use a combination of sweet and sour apples. And the firm apple that does not fall apart even when boiled is the most delicious filling with both texture and taste!
- pie crust – This delicate pastry not only holds pies together, but also makes for a crispy, soft crust!
- Apple – What is a fried apple pie without apples? But you need heat-tolerant apples like Golden Delicious, Pink Lady or Granny Smith.
- butter – This ingredient not only enhances the flavor of any dish, but it also helps prevent pies from becoming frothy and ruined.
- brown sugar – Sugar with residual molasses gives apples a warm, caramelized flavor!
- spices – Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves with a mouth-watering trademark apple pie scent.
- cornstarch – This guy thickens all the sweet apple juice that comes out of apples for gooey goodness! You can use flour or tapioca starch in a pinch.
- lemon juice – A perfect flavor enhancer that balances the sweetness of the filling.

tips and tricks
- These pies need to be fried at a high temperature to get a crispy golden crust. However, if you don’t own a quick-read thermometer, you can use an extra piece of dough to test the oil.
- It’s a good idea to fry a test pie before frying the whole batch. Your tester will help you see if it’s holding together. Moisten the pie with more water and seal it tightly with a fork before frying. Then feel free to eat the tester while cooking the rest.
- If the filling looks watery, add more cornstarch to thicken it. Start with half a teaspoon and add gradually as needed.
Fried apple pie is best when it’s hot and fresh. But you can go ahead with them. Arrange the raw pies on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flash freeze. Once frozen, store in an airtight container or freezer bag 2 months.
You can put the uncooked frozen pie directly into the hot oil without thawing, but you may need to increase the frying time. However, it should be chilled when frying so that the crust remains light and crisp.
How to eat and store
If your family is like mine, there are no leftovers. 😉 But the leftover fried apple pie 3 days at room temperature If wrapped in paper towels or tea towels.
