Amish apple fry pies are a testament to the simplicity and ingenuity of traditional Amish baking. These handheld delights, filled with spiced apple goodness and fried to perfection, have been a staple in Amish and Mennonite communities for generations.

How to Serve

Serve these maple brown butter glazed Amish apple fry pies warm or at room temperature. They are perfect on their own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side for an extra indulgent touch.

How to Store

Store any leftover pies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or refrigerate for up to 5 days. Reheat in an oven at 350°F for a few minutes to revive the crispiness.


  • Use a variety of apples for the filling to achieve a balance of sweetness and tartness.
  • Ensure the oil is at the correct temperature (about 350°F) for frying to prevent the pies from absorbing too much oil and becoming greasy.
  • Let the brown butter cool slightly before adding to the glaze mixture to prevent it from melting the powdered sugar too quickly.
