The Original Fried Pies sign in Davis, Oklahoma

Sometimes when I visit my sister in Texas we take trips up to Oklahoma.  We have visited the Arbuckle Wilderness drive through animal park and Turner Falls Park, both in Davis, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma City where we have toured the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.  We always make a point to stop at Original Fried Pies in Davis, Oklahoma. It is in the heart of the Arbuckle Mountains.

The Original Pies Shop pamphlet says the fried pies were originally made for ranch hands in the fields in 1893.  They have other locations in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Missouri, but the Davis, Oklahoma location off Interstate 35 is the original location.

The Original Fried Pie Shop’s menu

The generous sized hand held fried pies come in many flavors.  The fruit fillings are apricot, apple, peach,cherry, pineapple and blackberry.  You can also get the fruit pies sugar free. The cream pie fillings are coconut, chocolate, lemon and vanilla.  They also have pecan, which is one of my mom’s favorites (along with the blackberry). They have breakfast pies – sausage, cheese and egg and bacon, cheese and egg.  For lunch and dinner you could try chicken and vegetable, beef and vegetable, broccoli and chicken, spinach and mushroom, polish sausage and potato in a light cheesesauce, Tex-Mex or pizza style.

Cherry fried pie

My husband thoroughly enjoyed the sausage, cheese and egg.  My favorite is cherry.  The crust is light and flaky.  My great nephew Karson really liked his cherry pie.  He had his almost eaten before I sat down with mine. 

Karson loooved his pie!

We always eat one there and take one or two with us to eat later.

If you like them hot, it only takes a few minutes for them to make one in your choice of flavor.

My sister goes up to the animal park quite often and she always has to stop at Original Fried Pies. If you are ever in the area, take a break and stop and get a fried pie.
