Mini Apricot Fried Pies

Mini Apricot Fried Pies
by Linda Mire

My Grandmother made the best Apricot Fried Pies. I don't have a recipe because she did everything from memory. While she made everything from scratch, my recipe is something that is quick and very easy. The apricots are the star here, and these mini pies are very tasty and remind me of my Grandmother's.

1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
1/4 jar of apricots in natural juice, diced (about 1 cup diced)
Powdered sugar for dusting
Corn Oil

Unroll the pie crust and cut 10-12 circles using a biscuit cutter. Place 1 teaspoon of diced Apricots in the middle of each round. Fold over (making half-moons). Then go around the edges and seal, using the tines of a fork. Fill a medium fry pan with oil, about half way up. Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Carefully put the mini pies in hot oil. Fry in two batches, 5 to 6 at a time, so you don't crowd your pan. Fry for about five minutes, until golden brown, turning once.

Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle with powder sugar.
