These require time and a couple of steps, as there is a filling to cook first, and then cooky dough to make.Dough is rolled and cut out into rounds,two or three inches in diameter. Then put them together with a bottom layer,the filling and a top layer, and pinched aroud the edge. You could make them round with a little filling and fold-over to make a half-moon shape! They are incredibly wonderful.
