Continuing with strawberry recipes is this one that I can't wait to try. Thanks to my sister Lee in Tennessee, its gonna be a keeper.
Fried Strawberry Tarts
makes 18 tarts
2 cups fresh strawberries, mashed
3/4 cups sugar
Grandmothers Pie Crust recipe
1/4 cup cornstarch
Bring strawberry mixture to boil over medium heat.
Cook, stirring constantly 1 minute or until thickened. Cool completely.
Roll out pie crust and cut into 9 (4 inch) circles. Moisten edges with water. Spoon 3 teaspoons strawberry mixture into the center; fold over and press edges together. Repeat until all is completed.
Pour oil to measure one inch in skillet or use a deep fat fryer. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
Fry pie in batches for two minutes. Drain on paper towel an sprinkle with powder sugar.
Note: Freezing pies for one hour before frying can help the crust stay together during frying.
