In Texas these are called fried pies. I made some recently. Used dried apricots. Just cook the apricots with a little water, add sugar to taste. They thicken up on their own.
I like to use a tortilla press to make my pies. Take a ball of dough, and put in a cut apart zip lock bag and press a perfect circle….put a couple teaspoons of filling, crimp edges with fork, lighty fry.
I usually don't add a glaze. Just sprinkle with some sugar.
You can use your canned pie fillings also.

Do you need to fry in a pan. Thinking the flipping over would cause them to break? Would a deep fat fryer be ok? Mine has a lowering basket on it. That way it is handled less. Just a thought? I have made these baked also and they do turn out good, but i would like to try them friend also… There is are is a generic Hostess brand called "cutie pies". Ummm maybe they are Little Debbie brand.. not generic sorry lol. Kids loved those so I tried making my own with my tart press. I like cindy glaze thou better then mine… want to try hers. I did a chocolate pudding version and was good ( the ones that didnt explode in the oven lol )

I must have "sensed" this thread thru the ether!
Yesterday I was partially cleaning out our loaner fridge (long story) prepatory to gettng our new, replacement fridge -- tomorrow. Languishing in the back corner was a tube of crescent rolls. I decided to make them, and on impulse mixed up some cinnamon, a little raw sugar, chopped walnuts, and enough vanilla extract to moisten it in a custard cup. I cut 2 pats of butter into quarters and stuffed each roll with some (1T?)of the chopped walnut mixture and a piece of the butter. They were great! So I can recommend chopped walnuts with cinnamon, sugar and vanilla as a stuffing mixture too -- although with somethng as big as the fried pies, you'd probably also want fruit of some kind.
