McDonald’s switched over from fried to baked pies years ago, but every once in a while we still get cravings for them!
How To Make Copycat McDonald's Fried Apple Pies
Combine the apples, cider, sugar, zest and juice, and cinnamon in a saucepot. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes roughly, or until apples have softened and liquids have reduced until syrupy. Add ½ cup of water if over-reduced.
Stir in the flour and cook for a minute or two more. Remove from heat and let cool.
Heat cooking oil to 350 degrees F.
Divide pie crust into 4, then roll each divided dough into a 6-inch disc.
Carefully pile 2 tablespoons of filling on each disc.
Wet the edges, and fold over, pressing each into a turnover shape.
Seal the edges with a fork. Repeat until you’ve consumed all the pie dough and fillings
Fry the pies for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip halfway through. Remove when they are a deep golden brown.
Drain onto a plate lined with paper towels and serve immediately. Best paired with ice cream.
