Fried Pie

I've made these several times. They are simple to make and you can use anything you like for filling. My first go was peach but I made pumpkin last night. So so good.
Fried Pie
  • 1 low carb tortilla for each pie, I use the small tortillas 5 net carbs
  • 1-2 tbsp of filling of choice ( this is pumpkin and pecan)
  • splenda
  • oil

Generously brush one side of tortilla with oil, I used coconut this

time, but I've used melted butter too.

Turn tortilla over on a foil covered baking pan.

Place filling in center of tortilla.

Fold up the both ends, then roll like you would a burrito.

Sprinkle or roll in splenda
450 until brown and crispy.

Let cool before enjoying!

Other fillings I've tried are peach, chayote apple, blackberry and cream cheese.

You know I'd really like to take credit for inventing these, but the truth is it's a low carb version of a mexican recipe I found somewhere, a long time ago. It of course was dipped into batter and fried, and while this could easily be fried, I normally make more than one at a time so I've just gotten in the habit of baking them.

But your right it's something we all normally have around the house and it's super easy to do.

Thanks Jennifer,
The best part is it's automatically portion controlled...giggle no sneaking seconds if there isn't any
