Personal Notes:
These cookies are a big favorite of the Moore Family. These directions are sadly lacking. To my recollection, the dough is rolled out and cut into circles, the filling is placed on a circle of dough and covered with another circle. Then the edges are pressed with tines of a fork to seal cookie, then each cookie is sprinkled with a bit of sugar before baking.
