This recipe is a classic- originally published in a community cookbook by my talented friend, food writer and cookbook author Sue Epstein. Talk about Purim Miracles! It is fast and delish!


1 package yellow cake mix (like Duncan Hines)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
2 + tablespoons water
1 cup fruit preserves, any flavor or fruit filling like Solo brand


Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl or using a stand mixer, combine cake mix and flour. Stir in eggs and water to form a rollable dough. If too crumbly add another tablespoon of water.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch round circles and place 2 inches apart on the parchment covered cookie sheets.

Place a teaspoon of filling into the center of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners. Moisten with water if necessary for sealing.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on cookie sheets, Remove to wire racks to cool completely.


 Be creative with your fillings! Chocote, Nutella, cinnamon, nuts. Use any flavor cake mix you like, except Angel Food.
