Instructions

Pumpkin Hand Pies

  • Roll out the pie crust to ⅛-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut the crust into 4-5-inch rounds. (You should get 26-28 pie crust rounds.)
  • Add 1 heaping tablespoon of pumpkin pie filling to each round.
  • Fold each mini pie crust into a half-moon shape. Use water to wet the edges of the crust to help seal each crust. Crimp with a fork.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Frying

  • In a medium pot over medium heat, add 2-3 inches of oil. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature of 375°F.
  • Place 2-3 hand pies into the pan. Fry until golden brown (3-4 minutes). Transfer to a paper towel-lined cooling rack. (Before adding each batch of hand pies, make sure the temperature of the oil is at 375°F; it may cool down after each batch.)
  • While the hand pies are still warm, dip them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm or cold.
