Cooking Instructions

Beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour and juice. Spread on greased cookie sheet. Cut slits (12 or 15) and fill with pie filling (or pie cherries -- blueberries, raspberries or other could be used). Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
