Fruity Foldovers Recipe at
In a mixing bowl beat butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, coriander, and salt; beat till combined. Beat in the egg, honey, and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with a mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill for 3 hours, or till dough is easy to handle.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat apple or currant jelly till melted. Remove from heat. Stir in the dried fruit and pecans or walnuts.

On a lightly floured surface roll each half of the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut into rounds. Place cookies 1/2 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Spoon 1 teaspoon of the dried fruit mixture onto the center of each round. Fold half of the round over filling, creating a half-moon shape. Seal cut edges of each round with the tines of a fork.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 7 to 9 minutes, or till bottoms are lightly browned. Remove cookies and cool on a rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
