Fried Strawberry Pies

Ingredients

2 cups fresh strawberries mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 pkt refrigerated piecrusts - (15 oz)
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Preparation

1
Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring strawberry mixture to a boil over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thickened. Cool completely.
2
Roll 1 piecrust to press out fold lines; cut into 9 circles with a 3-inch round cutter. Roll circles to 3 1/2-inch diameter; moisten edges with water. Spoon 2 teaspoons strawberry mixture in the center of each circle; fold over, pressing edges to seal. Repeat with remaining piecrust and strawberry mixture.
3
Place pies in a single layer on a baking sheet, and freeze at least 1 hour.
4
Pour oil to a depth of 1 inch into a large heavy skillet; heat to 350 degrees. Fry pies, in batches, 1 minute on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with powdered sugar.

This recipe yields 18 pies.

Comments: Freeze the pies before frying to prevent the crusts from disintegrating in the hot oil. Hide one for yourself before they all get away.
