Deep fried apple or cherry pies! Cherry use to be my favorite. They used to be so hot when you got them that they would sizzle and burn your mouth. They were great. Much better than the baked ones that are served now!

I loved the cherry ones..I wished they still had them ! I liked the little bubbles on the top from them being deep fried.

I loved these pies too. I did figure out an alternative.I Took won ton dough,and filled it with canned apple pie filling that I cut into smaller cube sized pieces,and added a little extra cinnamon and sugar to the filling. You put it in the won ton dough and seal it up into a pocket. Then deep fry them. You can also do this with cherry filling too.

You can get these at Hardees which is owned by Carl's Jr. so I think they might sell them too. I think I even saw them at Roy Rogers. Still deep-fried in Spain's McDonalds!

I miss the deep fried ones also, since when does McD's care about cutting back the grease and going baked? FYI if any one reading this has a KFC ( Kentucky Fried Chicken) by them, they have the deep fried apple ones and they ROCK...and so did the 80's!

The Mcdonald's across the street where I work in Aurora, IL still has the deep fried apple ones..they taste just like the good ol' days and still come in that envelope packaging! they are AWSOME!!!i cant tell you the joy i experienced when i ordered a pie expecting to get the baked one in my bag and i opened it up only to discover the old fried ones. i swear...the baked ones are just as bad for you..they may as well have left them. you dont go to mcdonalds to eat healthy!

Who remembers the scandal when it was found out that McD's was using grapes in their cherry pies? We used to order "grape pies" all the time until they were finally discontinued. But my favorite f-f pies were the deep-fried lemon ones from Jack In The Box (we're talkin' years ago!)

McD in Italy still has the deep fried pies. I wrote the company about these apple pies and they said 1300 stores in the us that still have the deep fried pies. Please write McD and let tehm know how you feel. They have started getting rid of the carmel sundaes. We have to draw the line somewhere.

we have to flood their offices with letters demanding the immediate return of the apple pie. we should also start a telephone campaign in which we call 10 mcdonalds a night and ask them if they sell deep fried apple pies

We can do this and bring it back by popular demand!

Rich, Thank you!!! No one ever heard of the Pineapple pie. I worked at McD's in 85 and we sold them that summer. They were soooo good!

In October of 2008, McDonalds in Key west Fl. had fried apple pies. A trip down memory lane, would rather have been cherry!!

I have a buddy who lives in Dubai, and he tells me not only do they still fry the pies, but they are extremely popular items at the end of Ramadan, as they very closely resemble a traditional pastry eaten at the close of the holiday.

They still make them in Australia. There was a big scandal that they were using Choko (a vegetable) instead of Apples because apples were too expensive and Choko's were cheaper lol

Its been a few years since I've had a cherry pie at McDonald's so I picked up a pair of McDonald apple pies (they don't have cherry anymore?) last night for a $1 and did a double-take ... what commie regime took over and now serve flat, microwaved, uninspired leftovers with just enough impersonated apple-sauce to call it "fruit-filled"? Searching around, I found this site an it brought me back to the flaky goodness of scrumptious, mouth-watering, always steaming and nearly too-hot-to-eat cherry pies they used to serve at McDonald's restaurants.

The fried apple pies from Popeye's taste just as good.

Does anyone know a company that sells these that you can cook yourself?

If you want the closest thing to those little apple delights.... go to taco bell and pick up the apple empanada! they are the closest thing to those fried crispy apple goodies!!!

I recall the cherry and apple pies that sold year-round and our neighborhood McDonald's sold Pumpkin during November and December. We'd pick them up and bring them home to eat with Cool-whip. I only find apple now and they aren't the same as they used to be.

I LOVE McD's cherry pies and have been disappointed over the last few years at how few sell cherry pies. When I find one that sells them I mark it on my calendar. Cherry rulz. After being denied for so long, I am do not even care if they are baked or fried. They are crispy and yummy.

The fried pies were the BEST!!!! Don't care for the plain Jane version they sell today. I want the greasy version with the crispy bubbles! Checkers has something very similar (at least they did about a year ago).

I know you can get an exact replica of this pie at Krystal Hamburgers. I know Krystals aren't everywhere, but if you live near one and have been craving one these pies...problem solved!

I would like to state for the record that Jack In the Boxes apple pie is sorely missed. Less than ten years ago they pulled it from the menu-morons. Now if only someone else sold them just like JITB had, life would again be a bit brighter.

When ww visited England I was sook happy to see they still served the fried pies (at least in Oxford). I was pregnant and once I knew they had them, I was craving them! We almost missed our ride to the airport because we had to wait for the McDonald's to fry up special one just for me so early in the morning

I lived in Arizona for a while and the use to sell vanilla custard pies.They were the best. Mickey Ds should sell those everywhere.

I found out they stopped serving them bc they explode more than the other pies. So sad I loved them too
Sohni - September 17, 2010 - Report this comment

Why, why did they dare take their most delicious dessert off the menu.The apple,cherry, there was once a cheese pie too. ALL of them tops!! I miss them and want them back...I want the apple pie at Jbox back too. Snif, snif those extra calories were part of my diet ;D

Thank god for this site. Nobody seems to remember the Mcdonalds cherry pie! More times than none I would buy the cherry pie than the apple pie. I like both but cherry is better. The Mcdonalds apple pie has changed now it tastes more citrus clove. Now KFC sells fried apple turnovers 2 for 1.99. Bring back the cherry pie!

My favorite fried pie was blueberry. Most had cherry and apple but the McD's by my house our limitless league team would go after a win and they always had blueberry

I spent a summer in Germany during high school, around 1982. Just found the pie container that I had saved from there. It was their pineapple pie. I loved it. Saved it because I worked at McDonalds all through high school and thought it was interesting.

It's a shame that they stopped frying their pies. They're not as good baked as they are fried, but nevertheless, they're still delicious.
