Directions Step-By-Step

In large saucepan add all ingredents Except crust, oil and vinegar. Bring to a boil, cook until slightly thick. Cool Slightly
Cut pie crust into 4"-6" circles. Put 1 TBSP filling in center of crust. Fold over and crimp crust.
Heat oil with vinegar(vinegar keeps the pie from absorbing to much oil, you will not taste it I promise. Fry on one side til golden brown, flip and fry til golden. Drain on paper toweling(or brown paper bag)

    Wow, this is the first time I ever thought about "fried pecan pies"My question is "is the pecan filling solid enough so that it doesn't run and cause problems when folding over the crust?" It does sound delicious!! And it must work or else you wouldn't be making them for your functions. Well come around Thanksgiving my family will be getting a new treat!!

    Yes Shirley the filling is solid enough, basically its your average pecan pie just cooked on top of the stove. You cook the filling before putting it on the crust. I use Pillsbury crusts (the off brand falls to pieces when fried.) Hope your family enjoys them

    Jackie, have you ever made this using the Puff Pastry instead of pie crust???

    Shirley, I have never made them with pecan pie filling before either.
