Intro: 5-Minute Pie
You read that right! Get ready to eat some pie, 'cause it's only five minutes away.
This super easy fried pie recipe utilizes premade ingredients to ensure you never have to wait for a piece of your favorite warm, flaky pie again! Keep a few different fillings on hand, and you'll be ready to entertain the troops at a moment's notice.
Step 1: Ingredients
- Premade pie crust
- One can filling of your choice
- 1 1/2 cup oil (or enough to fry in)
Step 2: Form Pies
Roll out the premade dough, or else you'll be getting a mouth full of crust and not alotta fillin!
Cut the dough into 6" circles using a cutter or large empty can.
Fill one half with filling.
Fold dough in half, sealing edges and crimping with a fork.
Step 3: Fry Pies
Carefully lower the pies into the oil with forks or slotted spoon.
Fry for about 3 minutes total. If you're frying in a shallow pan, you'll need to flip the pies half way through. If you're deep frying (yeah baby!), then just let them float about until they're golden brown and delicious.
Drain hot pies on a rack over paper towels (or just paper towels if you don't have a rack) and sprinkle with sugar. Powdered sugar is yummy too, and cinnamon sugar is my favorite!
These are good right away, and also store nicely wrapped in paper towels in the fridge. The instructables crew all thought they were just as good the second day!
