Directions

Mix flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

Mix egg, milk, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl or a measuring cup.

Cream sugar with butter until lightened and smooth.

Beat egg mixture into creamed butter until just combined.

Add dry ingredients and beat until mixture begins to clump together, 18 to 20 seconds on lowest speed of electric mixer. Do not over mix. Or you can use hand to finish this step as well.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead gently to shape into a soft dough.

It can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 6 months.

Working with ¼ of the dough at a time, roll to about ⅛ inch thick.

Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut dough rounds.

Transfer rounds to prepared cookie sheet.

Fill the center of each with a little bit less than ½ teaspoon of prepared mincemeat, or jams.

Fold in half, crimp edges with a fork.

Turn corners up within ½-inch of meeting.

Arrange shaped cookies about 1½-inch apart.

Bake at 375℉ (190℃) until golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes.

Dust with sugar if desired.

One of six cookies that were baked with same cookie dough. And love these turnovers' shape, it was adorable, and the jam was breaking out and oozing out during the baking, they were delicious cookies. And so easy to make.
