Fried Pecan Pies
By Jackie Wooley Skettie
If you like fried pies, you'll like these. They are worth the effort it takes. My preacher's wife requests them for every function we have. Its like a bite sized pecan pie Yum,
dark corn syrup
melted (real) butter
1 1/2 c
coarsely chopped pecans
ready to use pie crusts
oil for frying
1In large saucepan add all ingredents Except crust, oil and vinegar. Bring to a boil, cook until slightly thick. Cool Slightly
2Cut pie crust into 4"-6" circles. Put 1 TBSP filling in center of crust. Fold over and crimp crust.
3Heat 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)
4sprinkle with powdered sugar, or dip in galze.
Glaze is 1 cup powder sugar dash vanilla and enough water to make a thin glaze

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.

How hot should the oil be?
