Yesterday was fried pie day!

I went to my aunts house in the afternoon and after dinner we all made fried pies. Fried pies are pretty much like pie filling in a folded pie crust, then fried in oil instead of baked. And they are soooo good. We used my great grandmother Lois's recipe, so of course it was wonderful, can't go wrong with a recipe thats been passed down generations.
Everyone participated, even little Dottie who is just learning to crawl. You can see some of my aunts kitchen in the photos, isn't it pretty? And that little pin up girl in the second picture is a bottle opener!

Update: If you want to try out fried pies for yourself, my Aunt posted the recipe here! Enjoy!

Such happy, colorful pictures! The mere sight of the bottle opener made me giggle.
How nice, although rare, to see so many people working in a kitchen together--including the guys--and so many aprons--even on the little ones. Cute!
Love the green glass kitchen knobs, too.

mmmm, fried pies sound -so- delicious! I love her spice jars with the little cherry labels. That baby is adorable! I'll have to find a little rolling pin for my baby girl, she's about the same age.

I love everything about this! The pictures are adorable, and I love the kitchen. I do have a question, are you a vintage family? everything about your aunts house screams sweet sweet vintage!
