    Here's a low calorie one...great for a person doing Weight Watchers!

    Oven Fried Peach Pies (Any pie filling you want!)

    1 Cup Canned Peaches, packed in extra-light syrup (or any pie filling you like)
    2 Tablespoons Sugar, divided (I used Splenda)
    3/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, divided
    1 (7.5 ounce) Can Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (1 point each)
    Butter Flavored Cooking Spray or Pam Spray (I use ICBINB Spray instead)

    Drain peaches completely and dice. Mix with 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Separate the biscuits. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each biscuit into a 4 inch circle. Spoon one rounded tablespoon of peach mixture into the center of each biscuit. Lightly brush edges of each biscuit with water, fold over and seal edges with a fork. Place pies on an ungreased cookie sheet and spray with butter flavored cooking spray. Take remaining Tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and mix. Sprinkle on tops of pies. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until browned.

    Serves: 10

    NOTE: What I did is make a total of 5 individual pies by flattening out the biscuits and then on one of the biscuits I put my pie filling and then put the other flattened biscuit on top and sealed the edges with a fork. I counted one pie as 3 pts that way.

    You can switch it and use whatever type of fruit/pie filling you have, such as lemon, blueberry, cherry, pumpkin, apple, etc..

      Gary Solomon's Deep Fried Mini Cherry-Almond Pies

      2 c. sifted all purpose flour
      1 tsp. salt
      3/4 c. shortening
      9 T. ice water

      2 cans (12 oz. each) solo cherry filling
      1 tsp. almond extract

      Place first three ingredients in large mixing bowl. Usining two knoves cut the shortening into the flour until coarse and pea size crumbs form. Add the cold water and using a plastic spatula gently mix until a ball forms. Form two discs and wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour minimum. Roll out into large rectangles and using a 5 inch bowl cut out circles dipping the edges of the bowl into flour each time.

      Add about 1 1/2 tablespoons of filling to centerof the dough. Wet the edges of the crust circle with your fingertips. Seal edges with a fork. Deep fry in very hot peanut oil until browned, about 2 minutes each side. Drain.
