  2. Roll one half of dough to 1/8- inch thickness on a floured surface, keeping remaining dough chilled until ready to use. Cut with a floured 3-inch round cutter. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of Dried Fruit Filling in center of each circle; fold into a 3-cornered hat shape, pinching edges together to seal. Brush cookies with 1 beaten egg. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over cookies.
