How to Make Fried Peach Pies with Refrigerated Biscuits

Fried Peach Pies are my go-to comfort food when I’m missing my home state or when fresh peaches are in season.

One day, when I was in high school, I was at the Fast-Stop (convenience store) in my hometown of Rochelle, GA. I’m pretty sure I was buying a Snickers bar and a Coke (my go-to snack back then). As I was waiting to pay, I noticed a man asking directions (before GPS) from the store manager. The man looks over at me, winks, and says, “You must be one of those Georiga peaches I keep hearing about.”

If looks could kill, he would have fallen dead that instant. I grabbed my candy bar and Coke, gave him a very southern, “you’re an idiot” look and walked out the door. Bless his stupid heart and gag me with a spoon!

Fried Peach Pies

Georgia Peaches

Georgia is known as the peach state because they have the best peaches in the world. The peach happens to be the official state fruit of Georgia. It also happens to be one of my favorite fruits.

How to Make Fried Peach Pies

When I was a little girl, I’d pick a ripe peach off of one of our peach trees and take a big ole bite. When I close my eyes, I can almost feel that sweet juice running down my chin. Mom would “put up” peaches in the freezer. I’ve been known to eat frozen peaches, right out of that freezer. Oh, my precious memories!

Peach cobbler, peach ice cream, and Fried Peach Pies are some of my favorite desserts. Sometimes I make Fried Peach Pies with homemade crust and sometimes I take a shortcut. I’m sharing my shortcut recipe today and using refrigerated biscuit dough. It’s good. It works. Let’s call this a semi-homemade dessert.

Sprinkle a work surface with flour. Flour both sides of a biscuit and roll each into a 5-1/2″ circle. I just eyeball it.

    Oh I love peaches and like your Mom, my Mom too kept them in the freezer and I used to eat it straight out of the freezer! Your recipe does seem interesting and easy to make. Since everyone at home loves too much on something during evenings, I think this is a wonderful thing I can try out and surprise them. 🙂
