Chopped the pecan and ham and set aside.
In a small-medium bowl add softened butter, cheese together mix.
Add flour, chopped pecan, ham, egg, sugar and mix, and vanilla extract and mix again till all is well combined set aside.
Bring out the chilled dough divide it into two parts.
Roll out the pie crust to a thickness of 1/4 thick. I used a 4 inch round cookie cutter to cut out pie crusts you should end up with 11 to 12 pies.
Scoop a teaspoon of the filling and place it in the center and egg brush one side with a little brush to seal the pie from opening up when frying.
Fold over each pie like a half-moon and crimp the edges with a spoon handle or fork tip and set it aside on a floured tray repeat the process until all is finished.
Heat oil on medium heat of about 365°F or test the oil by inserting a wooden spoon on it when it starts to bubble you know your oil is ready. It is too hot your pie will come out too brown why the inside is not fully cooked. Not hot enough will end up with soggy pies full of oil.
Place 3-4 pecan pies into the oil. Fry until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Place the fried pies onto a lined sieve with a kitchen paper towel.
Serve warm with a simple mayo dressing.Extra sweetness dust with icing sugar.
