Make a Kuchen Dough, and when raised, or Plain Pastry, or Cookie Dough. Roll out ¼ in. thick, cut into 3 inch squares and place 1 tablespoon preserves or jam or any desired Pie or Kuchen Filling, center of each square. Wet fingers with cold water. Late the four corners of each square, lift up over the filling and pinch together on top and at corners that the juice shall not escape or wet top edges of the squares, take hold of one corner and fold and pinch it to the opposite corner, thus forming a three cornered little pie, or place filling on lower half of square and fold over the other half, pinch the edges well together.

Lay in greased pan and if Kuchen Dough is used let stand in warm place to raise and then bake in a moderately hot oven until well done and browned.
