Fried Pie


I have continued my reign of frying everything in sight. This addiction has gotten to the point that we have decide to make Friday - "Fryday" and I have to get all my fried foods packed into one day.
I didn't realize how easy it was to make great foods using a fryer. I have only made a handful of things but they have all been better than bar or restaurant food. Once it is warmed up you can't help but find things to chuck in.
This morning I was sitting around thinking of how good it would be to munch on a "beaver tail" (these are a fried dough usually covered with sweet toppings). I realized that I had some dough leftover from when I made my last Bacon Pecan Pie so I rolled it out and it was ready to fry.
I fried it at 375 degrees F for around 2 minutes then drained on paper towel and topped with some brown sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup with a scoop of EGG NOG ice cream.
This was a little sweet for breakfast but would be a perfect way to end a meal. The pie crust was perfectly flaky. You could top it with any pie filling and ice cream and you would have a dessert that you won't forget. I wasn't really a "beaver tail" but it was close enough for me.
