I don’t eat sugar. I can’t eat sugar.
It makes me feel bad (as in ILL!)
And I don’t eat artificial sweeteners like Splenda anymore either. I use Truvia which is a better alternative but I use it in moderation, too.
I was so hungry for something good that I made an old stand by, Peach Fried Pies.
You can use your favorite biscuit recipe. Don’t over work your dough or it will be tough.
I make buttermilk biscuits and made a half recipe of dough.
1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, dash of salt with about 1/3 cup of Crisco cut in. Then add enough buttermilk to get a soft dough. Divide into 5 balls. Roll out 4 of the balls in 4 circles to put your fruit mixture inside.
For the fruit mixture, I sliced a ripe peach into a glass bowl, added a little water and microwaved for about a minute. (use a fork to check for tenderness). Add a tablespoon of flour, one package of Truvia, shake shake shake the cinnamon and stir to thicken.
Spoon the fruit onto each circle of dough, fold over and pinch the edges together. Fry in Crisco at medium to medium high in a large skillet.
OH MY! They were GOOD!
And what did I do with the 5th ball of dough? I made strips of fried dough to sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar for hubby of course! I’m Southern and love my fried pies. He’s not…and not so much! haha!
