    Mommy Diva's Note:

    This is an old family recipe which has been adapted from the traditional crust used with the White Family Fried Pies recipe. Both are great - this is just the one used most frequently over the past 3o years or so. I am guessing at the number of pies it will make I suppose it depends on how big you make them. Cook time is chill time. **We always make them with an apricot filling. ;) Usually made with Our Family Fried Pies Our Family Fried Pies ****Updated directions per request to include post filling directions.
