I haven't had them in years, so I thought they'd be great for this month's FRYday. I did try making these last FRYday using my own homemade biscuit dough, but they did not work. My biscuits were too flaky (imagine that!) and soaked up the oil like a sponge until they were falling apart. It was a dismal failure... thus the hush puppies instead to cheer me up. So, I cannot stress enough that you have to use the refrigerated canned biscuits for this very simple recipe. For once, something store bought is the only route. (Don't tell anyone I said that.)
Fried Biscuits with Apple Butter
-1 can regular refrigerated biscuits (Don't get the flaky layers kind or anything fancy. Plain Jane is all we need.)
-Enough canola oil for 2" in your pan/pot
-Apple butter - homemade if you've got it.
1. Pop open the can of refrigerator biscuits and separate. If desired, cut each biscuit in half. (This makes for more biscuits, faster cooking time, and they'll have a better chance of cooking through.) Line a plate with a couple of paper towels.
2. Heat oil on medium in a medium-sized pan until a tiny piece of dough sizzles, but doesn't brown too quickly.
3. Gently place the biscuit dough into the oil until the pan is full. Cook on one side to a deep golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side until done. Remove the biscuits with tongs or a slotted spoon and allow to drain on the paper towels. (Cut one biscuit in half to make sure it's not raw in the middle.) Cook the rest of the biscuits.
4. Serve hot, slathered with chilled apple butter - anything less than slathered isn't enough. Enjoy!

Unfortunately, these biscuits were completely raw in the middle. So I had to chop them in half...
|...and fry them again. |
They look burnt, but they're not. They were done this time.
