  • Remove from refrigerator and roll dough out on a lightly floured surface, one half at a time, to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Cut dough into 3-inch squares, and then top each with 1 teaspoon of your strawberry preserves.
  • Bring up 2 opposite corners of each square to center and then pinch tightly to seal.
  • Place the finished cookie onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper placing them around 2 inches apart.
  • Brush each cookie lightly with the beaten egg.
