DIRECTIONS

  • Place 1 inch of oil in a heavy frying pan, heat over medium heat until hot (about 350° if using a thermometer.).
  • On lightly floured surface, roll out pie crust, making sure any cracks are sealed. Cut into sixths. Place 2 tablespoons of filling on 3 of your pie crust sections. Place the remaining pie crusts on top of the filled sections and seal well with a fork. Carefully place pies in hot oil using a slotted spoon. Fry for one minute, then turn over for another 30-45 seconds. Remove from oil to drain on racks or paper towel covered plate. Let cool for at lease 5 minutes before eating. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.
  • Repeat with remaining pie crust.
