DIRECTIONS

  • For the filling, simply chop all the ingredients fine in your food processor and mix well.
  • For the dough, cream sugar and eggs.
  • Add oil and mix until it turns pale yellow and is no longer shiny.
  • Mix in lemon and vanilla.
  • In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to wet. When it becomes difficult to mix, add more flour and knead.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • To assemble cookies, roll out dough (in batches) to desired thickness (maybe a little thinner than 1/4") and cut into circles of desired size (can use cookie cutter, inverted glass, etc). Put a dollop of filling in the center of each cookie and fold up into a triangular shape, pinching the corners and leaving the center open so that the filling peeks out.
  • Bake cookies for about 15 minutes until they are beginning to brown. I've always greased the cookie sheet very lightly with non-stick spray, but I don't know that you need to.
