These take a little time to make, but are so worth it! Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving for a nice presentation. Cooking time is minimal per batch because filling is already cooked.

We loved them! Wow! What a great recipe for pies. They weren't greasy at all and the flavor of the spices made for a truly delicious dessert that we all enjoyed. I rolled in cinnamon and sugar when they came out of the fryer. My son ate 3 the minute he saw them! They came out golden brown and delicious! Thanks for sharing with us Marie!
