I can bake a cherry pie ♪♪♫quick as a cat can wink his eye....♪♪♫♪

A while back, I showed you how I liked to use GRANDS canned biscuits *gulp
by stuffing them full of PURE GOODNESS..
bacon
ham
sausage
cheese
anything you like...
just a biscuit...CANNED, at that....
*************
Another blogger...
and I am MORTIFIED that I don't remember WHO...
said to try adding sweetened fruit to the large biscuits and
fry or bake...(can't remember which she said to do.. sooo.....I did both !)

These are FRIED....and they are so good, it MUST be sinful !
Knowing Mr. Sweet and myself didn't need to be eating 
TOO many fried ones, I was a good girl and fried only 3..
1 for him and 2 for me...:))
*
Now, I don't care for canned PIE FILLING...
just not to my taste at all.
I used the tart cherries.
I boiled the juice from the can of cherries
with cornstarch and lots of sugar..(remember...these cherries are TART)

I cooked and stirred until the mixture became thick..
then, removing from heat, add the cherries and a spoonful of ALMOND flavoring.

 OH HONEY....let's take another look at it !
We've eaten every single one and now I've gone and made my silly self hungry for one.
The rest of these delicious treats went into the oven...
(We DO like them fried better.... )BUMMER !
for about 15 minutes or until they were nice and brown..

Just to think that these started out as a BISCUIT makes my heart sing...
I love it !
Before sticking them in the oven, I put a pat of butter, a sprinkle of sugar and dusted with cinnamon.
**
I am pretty sure YOU have something special that you do 
to a lowly CANNED biscuit...
Please share with us....:)
OH YES...Ya'll are gonna want to give these a try..
just roll those big biscuits out in a flat round circle...
add the cooked fruit and bake or fry...
and...
if you are lucky enough to have some of those
SWEETENED AND SEASONED CHERRIES left..
serve them right along beside the little pies that are just oozing deliciousness ..
I'm thinking how good these will be on CHRISTMAS morning...
Yep...you can cook your cherries the night before...have them all ready
to go into your biscuits and before ya know it,
you can have a CHRISTMAS platter heaped high with wonderfulness...
Do you suppose there is ANYone on earth that doesn't like CHERRIES ??


I am linking with
CENTERPIECE WEDNESDAY (i hope the little CHRISTMAS ANGEL will work as a centerpiece, sisters)

I'd like to add here that this ADORABLE CHRISTMAS ANGEL, all dressed in my favorite for Christmas, RED and WHITE STRIPES,
came from GOODWILL the other day for $1.00
I grabbed her so fast, I nearly threw her  threw  through the ceiling....:))

Hugs

All That Glitters said...

I'm so mad at you!!!! now I want something sweet!!! Those look great!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

My favorite...fried pies! They look amazing! I would weigh a ton if I lived near you! How do you stay so thin? Love your pretty new girl!I put some red and white candles out today! ♥

Debra@Common Ground said...

BJ, these look scrumptious! I think I hear my stomach growling...
hugs,
Debra

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh BJ Sweetie...
Those look SO wonderful. Yummy all the way. I am sure that we would prefer the fried pies too. I mean fried is always better in our minds right? To heck with the waistline.

Now BJ, I would have had to arm wrestle you for the angel, she is so stinkin cute. I love her little candy cane stripes, and for less than a $1.00? We can't find much of anything for less than a buck these days. She is precious. Thank you for sharing her beauty, as she makes the pies look that much sweeter.

A beautiful share sweet friend. Just beautiful.

Hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

BJ, those sound so good. My husband grew up eating home made fried pies. He loves them. I have never made them. These look easy. Thanks for sharing.

Ralph said...

We use the canned GRANDS biscuits as the topping of an ersatz pot pie, without the crusty bottoms of a true pie. Pillsbury does allow for the tops of a fine pie of sorts...

What is there to say about this fried concoction?? A stout mug of coffee and a couple of these may not be ideal in the sense of dietary health, but such a treat makes a fine start to a fine day!

A happy day of thanks to you and yours!

Blondie's Journal said...

I am definitely trying these for Christmas morning. I'll have to practice and do some taste tests first! ;-D

Can I ask what you fried them in? Butter, vegetable oil? Both? Now you know how I am going to cook them!

XO,
Jane

Mimi said...

I am going to do something I never do, go buy a can of Grands! Those look and sound delicious...thanks for sharing, BJ.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Gosh they look so good .. like pocket pies without any of the work of making the dough. I do like Grands and buy a few cans every holiday to serve as biscuits. They may be used this way instead :)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I'm sitting here wishing I had something homemade, baked and yummy...and I have to read this now?? I'm really craving now. I've done cinnamon rolls with biscuits, but never stuffed them with fruit.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Bj, These look wonderful! They are really good filled with apple butter too!
Hugs, Sherry

Rita said...

I have been frying donuts made from can biscuits for years. All the children love them.

I never thought of doing them as tarts. Great idea. I will try that the next time I have a house full of children.

I am going to send this to my little niece. She has won the cooking contest at her school for two years now. This would be a good idea for her. They are elementary school age and the recipes have to be easy and kid-licious.

Zondra Art said...

Looks so yummy!!!

Kisses.

Nancy said...

Y U M!!!! My mouth is so watering. It's almost 3:00 in the morning and I so wish I had some of these right NOW.

I will definitely try this!

Love the blue windmill canister post below also. I have two of them that I bought about 20 years ago. They've been broken and reglued over the years. Your collection is fantastic!

Thanks for the idea AND making me HUNGRY! I just can't read your blog at bedtime because eating before going to bed is a NO-NO:) I am going to try this with strawberry for the Grandkids on Christmas morning!

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

As I am sitting here noshing on my frosted mini wheats, I am wishing I could go to Beeeeej's house for some cherry pie!!!

From the Kitchen said...

For years, my mother made the best fried apple pies. Then she discovered Grands and they appeared even more often on our table. One problem was that mother could not bring herself to open those cans. She did not like the surprise of the "pop". So, she'd get us to open them for her. After a while, we started charging a dime for our services. She happily paid us!!

Have a wonderful Lubbock Thanksgiving with those dear to you gathered around.

Best,
Bonnie

Melissa Miller said...

Oh my goodness you really did make me hungry. Pretty pies BJ! :)

EmptyNester said...

Yummy-lish!!!! And I wouldn't even care about those 10 pounds they would add to my hips!

Rita said...

You are opening my eyes to a brand new way of cooking. I did learn to do a couple of things with crescents, but these look wonderful; thank you for sharing your baking secrets.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

Oh, these looks beyond yummy! And nice and quick. LOVE that! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Dandelion and Daisy said...

LV said...

These are wonderful suggestions you shared today. Everything you fixed looks so good. I love the old fashion fried pies, and yours come close to them. I wish I lived near you and get the leftovers.

Angela said...

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I am so seriously tempted by these fried pies. I've always wanted to try this. Was it a homemade biscuit or storebought? Sorry if you said and I missed it. I will have to try these!

Melody said...
