combine all the ingredients (except for glaze) using enough flour to make a soft dough. Let stand for 20 minutes. Divide dough into 3 balls. Roll a ball of dough on a floured board with a floured rolling pin until 1/4 inch thick. If the dough is sticky, knead in a little more flour. Cut into circles from 3-5 inches in diameter.
Place a dab of filling in center of round dough. Pinch 2 sides of the circle together then bring up third side and pinch. Add ingredients for glaze together and mix with a whisk or fork.
