Can you believe it is already been a whole week of cookies for Santa? I’ve got one last recipe to share with you. It is actually a variation on the Old Fashion Sugar Cookie recipe from a couple days ago. Instead of frosting the cookies use jam to create delicious and pretty jam sandwich sugar cookies. They are prefect for holidays because they look so pretty.
If you are planning a fancy Christmas party these are the perfect cookies to serve. Sometimes cookies seem like a kids food, but not when they are presented like this. Cut out equal amounts of the same shapes and cut out a small heart, circle, etc. in half of the large cookies. Then insert jam in the middle like a sandwich and top with powdered sugar for a beautiful presentation.
