Directions Step-By-Step

In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and cocoa powder. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture forms a paste. Set aside while you prepare the dough.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut up the shortening with a long-tined fork. Add the milk and stir until the dough sticks together. Divide into 10 portions. Roll each portion out on a floured surface into a 5-of-6-inch circle. Place 2 tablespoons of filling in each. Wet the edges and fold over, crimping with a fork. In a large skillet, pour the oil to a depth of 1/4-inch and heat over medium heat. Place the chocolate pies in the hot oil and fry until browned on both sides, turning as needed. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. You can put to sprinkle powdered sugar on chocolate fried pies if you like.

    I'm sure you know but you rehydrate the apricots and add sugar so they will be sweet but still tart.

    Nellie, I am sorry I left one out how to fix the filling. My apologies. No, you don't cook on the stove. Just mix with it and make forms a paste. When you fry the pies and it will melt the sugar and it will get thickens. Thank to let me know. Have a nice night.
