Momma Shirley’s Chocolate Fried Pies
By Shirley Hollman, St. Joseph, Tenn.

Chocolate Filling

1 ¼ Cup Sugar
1 Cup Milk
½ Cup Plain Flour
4 TB Butter
1 TB Cocoa
1 Tsp Vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and cook until bubbly. Let cool.


Momma Shirley prefers using Texas Butter-Me Not Biscuits if you can find them. If not, use a butter flavor biscuit dough.

Roll out the dough and using a saucer, cut the dough into circles. Place chocolate filling in the center of the circles. Fold each circle in half and use a fork to mash the edges of the dough together. Fry in oil until golden brown.
