Fried Peach or Apple Pies




If you've been craving an old-fashioned pancake like Grandma used to make, you've come to the right place.
These are my grandmother's pancakes. Layla loved making pancakes and the only kind we ever remember making them is peaches. Mama loved her peach pies and ate them all the time growing up, but one day she asked her to make her apple instead of her usual flavour. So Lila got all the ingredients and made a bowl full of apple pies just for Mama. I took one bite and realized, unless it's a peach, it's not just her grandmother's.
