Roll out each piece very thin, 1/8" on a floured board. Using the rim of a glass, cut the dough into circles. Place 1/2-1/3 tsp. of filling into the center of each circle. Fold edges over until you form a triangle keeping the jam exposed. Overlap corners when folding. Brush dough with beaten egg and place on greased cookie sheet 2" apart. Bake for 20 minutes.
