  • Fill a pot with boiling water to cook the frozen spinach until completely thawed.
  • Rinse the spinach well.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix all filling ingredients well.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll it out on a floured surface.
  • Use a glass or a round cookie cutter to cut circles out of the dough.
  • Fill each dough circle with 1 teaspoon of filling and close the dough into triangular-shaped cookies.
  • Brush the cookies with water and sprinkle sesame seeds over each cookie.
  • Place the cookies on a baking tray.
  • Place the baking tray with the cookies in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 170°C / 350°F with the fan.
