Popeyes' new Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pie is a limited-time menu item featuring strawberry puree layered with cream cheese inside of a deep-fried pie dough shell (technically, it's a deep-fried turnover).
My local Popeyes offers them for $1.29 each.
Popeyes' pies are similar to how McDonald's pies used to be (and still are, everywhere except here in the U.S.). The deep-fry treatment gives the pie crust shell a satisfyingly crispy, bubbly surface.
My pie didn't have much heft to it, but it's probably for the best portion-wise. It's about the same size as a McDonald's pie though.
If you're one of the folk still suffering from withdrawal after McDonald's Strawberry and Creme Pie ended its limited-time run, get yourself to Popeyes, as the deep-fried shell makes Popeyes' Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pie even better (although it is slightly pricier).
