  • Ready-made refrigerated rolled pie crust 2 pack box.
  • 2 Cups Bavarian Cream
  • Vegetable oil for frying.
  • For the Sugar Glaze
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Cup Powdered sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Milk


  1. Unravel pie crust and lay flat on a cutting board.
  2. Using a large round cookie cutter cut 7 circles. Optional: Roll out the crust scraps and cut out 2 more circles.
  3. Place 1-2 Tablespoons of Bavarian Cream on one side of the pie crust.
  4. Dip your finger in water and line the edges of the pie crust.
  5. Fold over crust to create a half-moon shape.

  6. Use a fork to create a seal around the pie crust.

  7. In a large skillet add enough oil to cover the bottom. You don't want to submerge the fry pies. Heat oil to 350F.
  8. In a small saucepan melt butter then add the remaining ingredients for the Sugar Glaze and whip together. Keep warm.

  9. Fry the pies for about 20 seconds on each side. As your oil may get hotter you will have to lessen the fry time on each side. Look for a golden brown color. Remove from and place on a wire rack.
  10. Brush on sugar glaze on both sides of the fried pie.

  11. Eat warm or cold.

Recipe Notes

When you pull them out of the fryer DO NOT place the pies on a paper towel. Place them on a wire rack with paper towels underneath to catch the oil.

Placing them directly on a paper towel will only make them soggy.
