    Thank You for printing the recipe Kevin!! I’ve tried making turnovers & the filling dissapates while in the oven. I hope that doesn’t hapen when I go to make these pies. If so I’ll contact you & maybe you can ask Lovina what could have gone wrong.

    Oh my, they look so good .. and sound really easy to make .. I get the fried pies at the Amish store in NC .. quite often hot out of the oven .. (but without the glaze) .. and I think my favorite is the lemon ..
    thanks for sharing this recipe Kevin ..

    my 2 favorites are lemon and blueberry. I’ve also had chocolate.
    I used to get those for my school and then work lunches.

    Wait a minute. The ingredients list calls for 2.5 cups of filling for 36 pies. but the directions say to put 1/2 cup of filling in each pie. That would mean you only have enough filling for 5 pies. It doesn’t add up.

    My guess is the amount of filling you put in each pie is wrong… that would be a lot for a little pie!

      Wendy, I agree, something was off there…so I changed the recipe. Should work just fine the way I changed it in the instructions. Good eye!

    I love fried pies. When I was growing up, my aunt made dried apple pies and they were delicious, but when I go up to Adams County I try to have different ones. Last week I had a peach and lemon. The time before was a grape & cream cheese. It was awesome. The pineapple one is good too. I have been to Adam’s County way too many times lately.

    Yum!! I know my daughter would love these. Can Lovina share some pie filling recipes? I would end up doing canned filling since I have no idea how to make the filling. I am sure I could find a recipe online though. And I agree, the glaze probably makes it so much better. 😉

    I think I mentioned this a few years back,but Ill share it again…I make these regularly,and did so when my kids were in school. My youngest son would sell them. I didn’t know for a long time. I always wondered why he wanted extra ones?!? They are good and simple to make. If anyone wants to freeze them,omit the glaze. It makes them soggy when they thaw. Good luck!!

    Oh my… these fried pies look amazing and I am sure they taste even better. We do not often deep fry food now, mainly for health reasons, but I will have to give these a try. I would love to eat one right now…please…
