This recipe came from my synagogue's Women's League cookbook. After I made this recipe I knew I had a winner when my children begged for them at every meal.

I used orange infused olive oil for a very subtle orange flavor. I also reduced the sugar to 1 cup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs well.
  2. Add oil and sugar, beating well.
  3. Beat in vanilla, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Gradually add flour.
  5. Chill dough. May be chilled overnight but let it sit out a while so it is not so cold - The dough will be easier to work with (I didn't include chill time in the preparation time).
  6. Roll dough onto floured board.
  7. Cut into 3 inch rounds.
  8. Place a heaping teaspoonful of filling.
  9. I used Solo poppyseed filling, Solo apricot filling, seedless raspberry preserves, and chocolate chips - They were all yummy.
  10. Take a little water and wet the outside area of the circle.
  11. Draw up sides to form a triangle and pinch closed.
  12. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets.
  13. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until brown.
