Knead to soft dough. Refrigerate overnight. Roll out on lightly floured board to about 1/2-inch thickness. Cut small circles with doughnut cutter or small juice glass. Place on cookie sheet, the rounds touching so they will rise up instead of spreading. Let rise until doubled. Make imprint in center of each with two fingers and fill with any pie filling. Bake at 375 degrees about 25 minutes. Serve dusted lightly with confectioners' sugar. For kuchens, divide dough in 3 parts and pat each into pie dish. Let rise until doubled. Pat dough down in center, leaving about 1 inch standing up. Fill with sweetened fresh fruit in season. Bake at 375 degrees 20-25 minutes, or until edges are light brown. --Mrs. Andrew Kasayka.
