I love sugar cookies so I figured sandwiching a couple of cookies around some kind of filling would be good, too! Aaaaannnd...I was right! I used raspberry jam but you could use any kind you like. I didn't have any seedless jam so all I did was heat up enough jam in the microwave so when it was strained it would equal about 1/2 cup. This cookie recipe is so simple. No rolling, no chilling the dough. Just mix and bake! These would be so fun at a shower or a tea. Really good and easy, too! You should have seen IT Guy's smile when he tasted these! He was pretty happy!
