Fried peach pies using canned biscuits is another one of my desserts to make with canned peaches that I know will be an instant hit with your family.
Tips for Making Hand Pies:
- Make sure you drain the peaches well.
- I used Pillsbury Grands biscuits for this recipe but, you may use any bigger type brand of biscuit that you prefer.
- Use a rolling pin to flatten each biscuit.
- If you don't have a rolling pin, you could use your fingers to press the biscuit dough until it’s flattened.
- Place the hand pies in the freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes before frying.
- You can test to see if the oil is hot enough by using a digital meat thermometer or dropping a little water in the oil. If it sizzles, jjjjjjjj
Cooking Tip: The oil is ready when you drop a little bit of water on it and the water sizzles and pops.

- Pillsbury Grands Biscuits; 8 count size
- Canned peaches - I used packed in light syrup.
- Powdered sugar
- Almond extract - if you don't like the flavor of almond extract, you can substitute vanilla extract.
Step 1: Flatten the Biscuits
Using a rolling pin, gently roll each biscuit into about a 4 - 6 inch round. You may need to sprinkle a little flour on top of each biscuit if you find the rolling pin is sticking.
Step 2: Add the Peaches
The canned peaches for this recipe for fried peach pies using canned biscuits needs to be drained.
Once the peaches are drained, add at least two peach slices to the biscuit round and gently fold over. Press the seams together and then using a fork, seal the edges completely.
Place the hand pies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Then place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before frying.
Step 3: Frying Instructions
Preheat the oil in a large skillet. I used my cast iron skillet. You don't need much oil, probably about a cup of oil for a skillet as large as I have.
Once the oil reaches 350°, add four of the hand pies. Do not add all eight at once. Please be very careful working with hot oil.
Allow the pies to cook for about two to four minutes and then gently flip them using metal tongs. Continue cooking for another two minutes until the pies are golden brown.
Step 4: Allow the Pies to Cool
Allow the hand pies to cool by placing them on a baking rack that's place on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper so any excess oil will drip off.
Step 5: Prepare the Glaze
Combine the ingredients for the glaze and pour on top of the cooled pastries.
Pouring the glaze on top of the hand pies while they're still on top of the baking rack allows the glaze to drip down and not create a huge mess all over your serving platter.
Step 6: Serving and Storing Tips
Store them in a plastic container loosely covered with plastic wrap. Do not store them in a closed container as the glaze will soften the pies.
