Sunday With Marlena Spieler
This is my last post for our series of cooking through the cook book, Jewish Cooking by Marlena Spieler. What a blast! I got to know two of my blogger friends more closely, had the opportunity to meet Marlena a couple of times and even learned to make Matzo ball soup from her aunt. This journey has been a pleasant and yet challenging one. It challenged me to try recipes that I may never have tried and every time, I was skeptical about it, Marlena proved me wrong each & every time. The recipes were fantastic, we have tweaked the recipes a bit, played with and savored almost all of the dishes. Thank you Mel! for including us in this fun project.
Coming to this sweet recipe for today, I think those of you who know me, are aware that baking is not my forte. I bake, but have a few recipes that I enjoy baking and make them frequently. The name may not seem familiar to you, but if you are like me, use the store bought sugar cookie dough and this recipe is a breeze. I believe every family has their own version of sweet fillings. I used mango jam and it was delicious.
Sugar cookie dough – cut in 2 inch rounds
Mango Jam – 1/4 cup
Flour the rolling surface well and the cookie dough in 2 inch rounds. I flattened mine with a rolling pin, and spooned some mango jam in the center and folded the edges to make a triangle. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 6- 10 minutes, until the edges turn slightly brown.
