Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large stock pot or dutch oven over medium high heat. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, and soda water until smooth. Spray your hands with nonstick spray.
  3. While waiting for the oil to heat, use a small ice cream scoop to scoop the pie into 1 inch balls. Roll with your hands to create an even look. Use a fork to dip the ball completely in the batter mixture, making sure all sides are covered. Once oil is cooked, cook in batches, 3-4 at a time. Once browned and crispy, remove with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
