What are the different variations of Amish Fried Pies?
Amish Fried Pies are so versatile and can be made with different pie fillings like apple or strawberry rhubarb. We always recommend making your own pie fillings but you can also opt for a simpler store bought pie filling too. Amish fried pies are similar to turnovers however instead of using puff pastry they use a flakey homemade pie crust.
Fry or Bake Amish Fried Pies
Amish Fried Pies are obviously fried, however you can also bake these pies for a healthier version using less oil. We recommend using a fryer for Amish fry pies to keep the temperature consistent, but you can also simply fry these pies on the stove top making sure the oil temperature stays between 350-375°.
To bake Amish Fried Pies, preheat the oven to 425°. Arrange the Amish hand pies on a greased cookie sheet with a small slit in the crust, and bake for 20 minutes until browned.
