"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1 pound dried apples
1 pound dried apricots
3 cups water
2 cups sugar
can biscuits (do not use the layered kind)

Directions:
Directions:
Boil the apples and apricots in water with sugar. I did not measure this out;I only did to taste so I am guessing at what I used. Boil until the fruit is plumped and the liquid is very thick.

Pat out a biscuit until about the size of your hand. Fill with a teaspoon or so of fruit. Fold over and pinch sides closed. Put into hot oil until it is golden brown. Then flip and cook the other side. Place on a wire rack to cool.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom used to make these all the time as a special treat. I never saw her measure any of the ingredients so we have just had to try and replicate. They are one of Justin & Aubrey's favorites.

Note from Cindy: If Lori says 2 cups of sugar, I'd start with 1/2 that. Lori is famous for her sweet tooth.
