Old-Fashion Fried Pies
Just like granny used to make!
Remember the delicious fried fruit pies your Grandmother made?...
Well you can still eat them and they are so simple to make it will surprise you!
Can be used as breakfast, snack or dessert.
You can use the sugar free pie filling found in most stores or make your own.
Low-carb tortilla (4 to 6 inch round)
can of sugar free fruit pie filling
Spread 1 teaspoon of butter on tortilla
add 1 to 1+1/2 tablespoons of fruit pie filling on one side
Sprinkle with cinnamon (if using apple pie filling)
Fold and mash edges with fork to close.
Fry in butter on medium heat until brown, turn and fry on other side until brown.
**Can also be baked in 350 F oven until golden brown. Brush with a dab of oil or melted butter before baking.
Tortilla has 5 g carbs
filling has around 2 g carbs
One serving is about 7 g of carbs depending on amount of filling used in tortilla.
You can add 1 tablespoon of whipped topping if you like but this will increase your carb count, depending on what kind of topping you use.
OR sprinkle with Splenda powder sugar.
To make your own filling: Cook sliced apples (cherries, peaches, apricots) in butter and Splenda sweetener until tender. Add cinnamon if using apples.
Then prepare as above.
TIP: Cinnamon is known to help reduce blood sugar.
