Okay, fried pies is in parentheses because this started out as the fried pies recipe and it morphed into other things. The truth is, you can do a lot of tasty fillings in canned biscuits. My mother makes chocolate fried pies. I think she uses canned frosting as the filling. I supposed you could use cool whip and get fried cream pies. I've never tried it. But I think it could work.
This is the first time I photographed my cooking. I must say, it is rather annoying to constantly stop to take a picture. I worry that I may leave out a step. I forgot to photograph the cooking oil. Things would probably go much more smoothly if I had someone photographing me as I cook. But then we're back to heads peering into pots and hands sneaking off bits of goodies.
You can use any type of cheese. I prefer to break off cheese sticks because that gives more melted goodness. I used shredded here because it was all I had.
