Course Dessert

Ingredients
  

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 5 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fruit preserves any flavor

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until lightly and fluffy. Stir in the oil, vanilla and orange juice.
  • Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter to form a stiff dough. If dough is not stiff enough to roll out, stir in more flour.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter or the rim or a drinking glass.
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of preserves into the center of each one. Pinch the edges to form three corners.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
  • Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
