Vergie Coxe ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheneworth/2680679337/in/set-72157608646969652/ ) made fried pies for years and sold them at the homecoming. She died recently and the pies are different now. They are now much smaller and they are fried in deep fat. It's still done in cast iron on a wood-fired range though
