  1. Step 1

    Combine apples and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat and let cool, mashing slightly if pieces are large. Stir in sugar and butter and set the mixture aside.
  2. Step 2

    On a lightly floured surface or pastry mat, roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle. Place about 2 tablespoons of the cooked apple mixture on half of each biscuit circle.
  3. Step 3

    To seal the pies, dip your fingers in water or milk and moisten the entire edge of each dough circle. Fold each circle in half, making sure edges are even.
  4. Step 4

    Using a fork dipped in flour, press edges firmly together to seal.
  5. Step 5

    Heat oil to about 360 F in a deep fryer or heat about 1 inch of oil into a heavy, deep saute pan or saucepan. Fry the pies in the hot oil until golden brown, turning once to brown both sides.
  6. Step 6

    With a slotted spoon, remove the pies to paper towels to drain and then sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.
  7. Step 7

    Serve the pies warm with a scoop of ice cream and caramel ice cream topping or syrup, if desired.
