It was always a special day when mom made her fried pies. She’d have them filled with apples or peaches and sometimes pears cooked to the perfect balance of sweet and tartness.
I have came up with my own version using DivineKuizine sugar spice to sweeten my pie filling as well as a quick and easy version to be able to love theses babies any time .
These Apple Fried Pies are irresistible. The filling is simple with just a hint of spice. The crust is tender and flaky and just a little crunchy. Rolled in DivineKuizine sugar spice for a sweet coating that seals in all the goodness.

1/2 cup Divine Kuizine Sugar Spice
2 tablespoon butter
1 tsp apple cider
1/2 fresh lemon; juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 pie crust fresh or store bought
