It is time for a fried pie.

Big Jakes Barbecue in Texarkana has these. We visit here when we are in the area.  They are not as good as my mama used to make, but close enough.

Peach is the only one I will purchase.

Until next time...


  1. awwww. . .Dave loves Fried Peach Pies. . .we haven't had any since MawMaw Jones (a sweet, wonderful lady in our church) went to heaven. . .bet'cha he would arm wrestle ya for that one. . .bookmarking this place just in case we come back home through Texarkana. . . :)

  2. There's a fried pie place in Glen Rose... Celeste bought a dozen or so for Easter. I don't know how many Bill ate... there's pineapple, berry, apple and maybe peach. I do know they were all gone by evening (but there were about 15 people here for dinner... so, honest, Bill didn't eat them all). Not my thing... but if they'd been pumpkin or chicken empanadas, I'd have had my share. Looks like you enjoyed them to the max!

  3. I've never tried a fried pie, but it looks tasty. Hardly any calories I'm sure. ;)

  4. We fell in love with friend pies in Shipshewana last fall. We will have to check them out when we get to Texarkana.
