Do I spread jam across the entire square?

The recipe says "spread a very thin layer of jam... over the bottom of each square..." By "bottom," does that mean spread over a triangular half?

Take a spatula and spread over the traingular shape its simple. Check shoptruepills to know about more receipe techniques.

I read the step 4 where those directions are found. It sounds like we are supposed to put (thin layer of) jam down first on the flat piece pasta/pastry, then a (thin layer of) cheese.
Both should be well within the border - enough to fold into triangle and seal.
Hope this helps.

Yes, but across the entire square or only half?

My take (from both this recipe and experience) is to spread the filling over the whole square, leaving the exposed border for sealing.
But/and you could try spreading it on half the square, and see how that works.

Yes! A thin layer of jam covering the square; I do leave a touch of a border which makes sealing the triangles easier. Hope this helps.
