Mommy Diva's Note:
This is one of the standard pastry recipes our family has been using and passing down for many generations - I am sure anyone that has a family that loves fried pies will recognize this and love it!! Simply fill with your favorite filling(apricot is our favorite,but I hear a mix of apricot and peach is great).**cook time is chill time. Usually made with Our Family Fried Pies Our Family Fried Pies
