“Oddly enough, this is from ChocolateChocolateand They are super easy and so delicious. My mouth waters just thinking of them! *You may use your own favorite pie crusts or any one of the pre-made refrigerated ones at the market. Don't over stuff the pies or they will fall apart when you try to flip them in the hot oil.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (21 ounce) can lemon pie filling
  • 1 pie crust
  • oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Place 1 inch of oil in a heavy frying pan, heat over medium heat until hot (about 350° if using a thermometer.).
  2. On lightly floured surface, roll out pie crust, making sure any cracks are sealed. Cut into sixths. Place 2 tablespoons of filling on 3 of your pie crust sections. Place the remaining pie crusts on top of the filled sections and seal well with a fork. Carefully place pies in hot oil using a slotted spoon. Fry for one minute, then turn over for another 30-45 seconds. Remove from oil to drain on racks or paper towel covered plate. Let cool for at lease 5 minutes before eating. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.
  3. Repeat with remaining pie crust.
