Sugar Free Peach Fried Pie

peachesbowlYou don’t hear much about fried pies anymore. It seems today that almost everything fried is demonized. But I like fried pies – and once about every ‘blue moon’ – I decide to make a batch. They had some beautiful peaches at the store so I bought a few with fried pies in mind. I can hardly make anything ‘sweet’ without thinking of how to make it sugar free so David can eat it – and these pies are very easy to convert.

Here’s my recipe for peach fried pies (makes 4):
1 Pillsbury pie crust defrosted and cut into quarters.
3 Large ripe peaches (peeled and sliced)
1 Tablespoon water
1 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 – 1 Cup Splenda (depends on how sweet you want it)
1 Tablespoon corn starch
Dash Cinnamon (optional)

In a sauce pan cook the peaches, water, lemon juice, Splenda, corn starch and cinnamon over a low medium heat. Gently stir  until everything is combined. Continue cooking and stirring until the peaches are soft (not mushy!). If it appears the fruit is sticking add a tablespoon of water at a time to the mix until done. You do not want to add so much water that the base is soupy. When the peaches are soft – remove from heat and cool.


When the fruit is cool, roll out the pie crust and cut in to quarters.  Place about 2 heaping tablespoons of the cooked peaches in the center.  Use a slotted spoon here to help drain any excess liquid from the fruit.   The less liquid in the pie the easier it is to fold  and will spatter less when frying.   Fold over and use a fork to crimp the edges.  Gently lift the pie and place it into a frying page of preheated oil (medium heat, 1/2″ deep).  Fry one side until golden brown and gently turn pie over to cook other side.  Using either 2 spatulas or a spatula and a fork to turn the pies helps keep the hot grease from splashing.  Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain.
