Fried Pies: You'll need 1 can biscuit mix and 1 can of your favorite pie filling (apples, peaches, cherry). Roll the biscuits out to about six inches or so.  Put a tablespoon or two of pie filling into biscuit and fold over pressing edges close with a fork.  Brown in a skillet in some butter and when golden brown sprinkle with powered sugar. Homemade pie right at the campsite.
