FRIED APPLE PIES

January 11, 2018

If you've read my YA-novel, Honeysuckle Holiday, you most certainly "tasted" Lila's fried apple pies.  She fried "the juiciest apple pies in the universe."  Lucy loved them, and so did I in the summer of 1966 when my family and I lived in the hot, humid heat of a Memphis afternoon and even still in the hot, humid heat of an Appalachian day.  Like Lila and my family, I think I'll always love juicy, fried apple pies and the memories -- the bittersweet memories -- they conjure.

 

And so, in preparing for a gathering of Honeysuckle Holiday readers later this month, here's a recipe for Fried Apple Pies that I uncovered on allrecipes.com.  It's as close to Lila's recipe (although I seriously doubt it was ever written down) as I could find, closing my eyes and remembering . . .  I think she would give her seal of approval, although not complete -- close enough.  Enjoy!
