  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 0.5 cup of oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon of salt
  • 0.5 teaspoon of baking soda

Roll out the ready dough and cut out cookies of any shape you like. You can make various shapes - flowers with a hole, circles, squares. But make sure there's room for jam.

Place the ready cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
