    when I was younger my mother would make for a lack of a better way a chocolate filled cal zone. she would chop milk chocolate, diced citron, and add anisette. place it on a dough cover and seal it , then fried it until it was golden brown. once it cooled off and you bite into it the chocolate was not runny but firm. would anyone know the name of this desert? and the type of dough you would use?

    Thank you

    Sounds like an empanada which are often sweet.

    This sounds like a dessert my great-grandmother used to make which she called "Cassatine alla Siciliana". To eliminate confusion with a cake of a similar name, "Cassatine Fritte" would yield a more accurate search result. Here are a few examples I managed to scrounge up.
