Recipe: Easy Fried Banana Pies

If you're looking for something a little different to serve for dessert at weekend get-togethers, try these easy-to make Fried Banana Pies.

• Get some large, firm, barely ripe bananas. Each banana will make four mini-pies. Barely ripe bananas will hold their texture better.

• Get some Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry dough. It comes in ready-to-use sheets in your grocery's freezer section. (I tried filo dough, but it's too fragile for me to work with. Your mileage may vary.)

• You'll also need some honey, and/or brown sugar if desired, powdered confectioner's sugar, and vegetable cooking oil.

1. Peel and slice bananas in half longways, and then in half again crossways.

2. Lay out a sheet of puff pastry dough. I roll it out a little thinner to make it go further and make the pies less doughy.

3. Cut a square of pastry dough slightly longer than a banana piece, and place the banana on it. Put a little honey on the banana, and/or sprinkle a little brown sugar if desired, roll it up so it looks like an eggroll, then pinch all the seams and ends together to seal it.

4. Fry in a skillet with 1/4" or so of medium-hot cooking oil. Fry on each side until the dough is done to a crispy golden brown.

5. Remove from skillet and use a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Sprinkle with powdered confectioner's sugar.

Serve hot, alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. Yum!

I wonder how it would taste with some cream cheese with the banana?
I will defiantly try this one, thanks for posting.
