I made these a while ago but I called them empanadas because that is their real name. The title "fried pies," however, is much more palatable to fat stupid Americans like you. Fuck, there is even a fried pie food cart right here in Portland. They are pretty tricky to make at home but between this post and my previous one, you should be able to pull it off. Let's begin:
Make a pie crust, quarter it, roll one out, and plop down some type of berry preserves or any other kind of sweet shit you might like. "I like Count Chocula. What about that?" Sure. Just be sure to pour some milk in there too, genius.
Fold the top of the crust over the filling and seal the edges by pushing them down with the tips of your fingers. Flip it, re-form, and crimp it with a fork. Flip it again and crimp it. Trim the edge with a knife to make it look all pretty and shit.
Get a lot of vegetable oil really fucking hot over medium to medium-high heat. Drop that shit in and back up. Hot oil on your skin sucks ass and if the oil hits the burner it will start a fire. Keep it in there for a few minutes and delicately flip it once with two spatulas. Top that bitch with some powdered sugar.Just in case you were wondering what it looks like on the inside. Eat it.
