This recipe is one of the best cookie recipes ever. I found this one in an Italian cookbook from the 1970's.

How to Make Jam Turnover Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place flour on pastry board. Make a well in the center.
    Put butter, sugar, 2 eggs, (grated lemon rind) and salt into the well. Work the flour mixture gently with your hands and form into a ball.
  • 2Cover with clean towel and let rest for 1 hour.
    With rolling pin, roll dough to 1/4" thickness and cut out 3" circles (I use a drinking glass for this).
  • 3In the center of each circle of dough, place 1/2 tsp. of preserves then fold dough in half and crimp with fork to close edges. Brush the dough with the beaten egg.
  • 4Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place cookies on cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove them from the oven and serve.
  • 5Optional: after removing cookies from oven you can sprinkle them with confectioner sugar...I never do but the recipe offers this option.
