Made apricot fried pies today from lela's recipe and they were very good. I made the apricot because I grew up eating my mama's apricot fried pies. Never got the knack for making them myself and several weeks ago I decided I was hungry for apriot fried pies and found lela's recipe on this board. I knew how to cook the apricots, but not amount of sugar, and didn't add the cinnamon or butter (well, just a little bit. lol, butter that is), but never got the recipe from mom re: the crust, she just said a pinch of that and a pinch of this. Anyway, they turned out really good, and the crust was very good. Just wanted to say Lela, if you are reading this, thanks a bunch and my dh thanks you.
