I attempted to make another attempt at the fried apple pies. I bought canned biscuits to try the shortcut that several people had suggested. Here is the problem. Except for my mom's biscuits, there is no other biscuit I love more than a canned biscuit. Is that sacrilegious for a Southerner. Possibly, but there is just something about the taste. Needless to say, I ate the canned biscuits before I ever attempted to make a fried pie. I feel as though the whole fried pie thing is not going to happen. Last night, my sister ate a fried sweet potato pie from McDonald's. I don't see a thing in the world wrong with that. McDonald's knows what they are doing. She even got a nice safety lecture about eating hot pies from the nice man behind the counter. When she attempted to try the pie another minute later, he yelled at her from across the restaurant, "no, no, no." It was steaming hot, so it was good to have a pie lifeguard so intense about his job.
