Duff Goldman's Deep Fried Pumpkin Pouches

  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 2 Large Eggs plus 1 yolk
  • 2 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 2 Teaspoon Orange Zest
  • 1 15 ounce Can Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 14 ounce Package Pre-made Pie Crust
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Powdered Sugar for garnish
step-by-step directions
  • In a small bowl mix the sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves and set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat the eggs with the lemon and orange zest. Stir in pumpkin and sugar spice mixture and mix until well combined.
  • Preheat 3" of oil in dutch oven to 375F.
  • On a floured workspace, roll out the pie crust. Using a 3" round, cut into circles.
  • Spoon a generous tablespoon of the filling into the center of the circle and gather the corners up around the filing to create a pouch. Brush the edges with yolk.  Press to seal the pouches.  Set aside.
  • Once all pouches are ready, drop into oil, and fry until golden-brown, about 2-3 minutes. Work in batches if necessary. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate. Garnish with powdered sugar, and serve.
