PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes
SERVINGS: 2 dozen
1 package cake mix - any flavor but funfetti, red velvet and lemon are always fun
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. water
1 cup fruit preserves, any flavor
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and flour. Stir in water and eggs to form a firm dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inches thickness. Spray the rolling pin with cooking spray will make it easier to roll the dough out. Use a round cookie cutter and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Place a tsp. of filling into the center of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners. Moisten with water if necessary.
Bake for 5 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool before removing.
