Fried Strawberry Pie – #southerncomfort

These are worth the effort and time. I have had these and they are too good! This is a treat that people will be raving about the next time you serve them.
2 cups fresh strawberries, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
Vegetable oil
Powdered sugar
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.

Roll 1 pie crust 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 pie crust and strawberry mixture.

Place pies in a single layer on a baking sheet, and freeze at least 1 hour.

Pour oil to a depth of 1 inch into a large heavy skillet; heat to 350°. Fry pies, in batches, 1 minute on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with powdered sugar.
