our family fried pies


this is one of our family traditions that has been passed down from generation to generation. my cousin tammy and her mom have made the best for years so no one has really attempted it - until the family gatherings slowed down and i found the recipe. guess i may have to try my hand at it -these really are to die for!! **crust prep time not included in this protion of recipe*** tammy's fried pie pastry recipe #214569 or traditional fried pie pastry recipe #214575 preferred
