Pull a piece of dough, about 2 tablespoons, from the bowl. Form a 2-inch flat (but fairly thick) circle by hand. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the filling on top of this dough-pancake. Close the dough over the filling to form a soft dome, making sure dough is covering the filling on all sides, and pinch the top to seal the cookie (it might resemble the top of a Hershey's Kiss; you can also flatten it with your hand, but make sure that the top of the cookie is sealed!).
