  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, powdered sugar, and salt.

    • Place a teaspoon of plum jam in the center of each circle.
  4. Seal and Shape:
    • Fold the dough over the jam to create a half-moon shape.
    • Use a fork to crimp the edges and seal the pastries.
  5. Bake:
