4 c flour
4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 c butter or margarine, softened
1 T orange juice
2 t baking powder
1 t vanilla extract
1 t finely chopped orange zest


Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly grease cookie sheets with vegetable spray and set aside.

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat on high. Add more juice or flour, as necessary, to achieve the right consistency. Roll dough into a ball and divide into four parts.

Roll out each part to about 1/8-inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or the open end of a glass, cut out 3-inch circles.

Put ½ a teaspoon in the center of the circle and then fold the right and left sides into the middle, leaving a bit of space for the filling to poke through. Bring up the bottom side and pinch the edges together.

Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
