 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 c Granulated sugar
  • 2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c Seedless raspberry jam or
  • Currant jelly
  • 1 c Confectioners' sugar
  • Milk (1-2 tablespoon)
  • Colored sugar for decorating


1. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl of electric mixer until
light and fluffy. Slowly add flour and blend well. Remove from bowl and
knead until shiny. Divide dough in half; wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate
dough until it is firm enough to roll, several hours or longer. Let dough
soften slightly on counter if too firm to roll.

2. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Roll dough between two sheets of floured wax
paper or flatten dough with floured hands to 1/4-inch thickness on a
floured surface. Use cookie cutters to make shapes. Transfer to ungreased
baking sheets. Bake only until slightly golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool on
cookie sheets just long enough to firm cookies and then remove to wire
racks to cool completely.

3. To assemble, spread half of the cookies with a small amount of jam and
sandwich with another cookie. Put confectioners' sugar into a small bowl
and drizzle in just enough milk to make a thin glaze. Frost cookies lightly
with the glaze and sprinkle with colored sugar. Let stand until glaze
