Rolled Heart-Shaped Sugar Cookie Sandwiches


Sugar covered cookies

 

This dough is just waiting for your collection of cookie cutters. I am using hearts
and making little sandwiches with yummy raspberry jam as the filling — the perfect Valentine’s
Day treat!  You can use different cookie cutter shapes and have fun decorating with colored
sprinkles, sugar or pipe royal icing.

 

Finished Heart-Shaped Cookies

 

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/3 cups all-purpose floor
raspberry jam (optional)
confectioners’ sugar (optional)

 

Ingredients for Sugar Cookies

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and well blended.

Add egg, baking powder, salt, and vanilla until evenly incorporated.

Stir in flour until well blended. Divide dough into three equal balls. Place each ball between large
sheets of wax paper. Roll out until about 1/4 inch thick, checking the underside frequently and
smoothing out any creases.

Keeping the wax paper in place, refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes or until cold and slightly
firm but not hard.

Working with one portion of dough (keep the rest refrigerated), gently peel away 1 sheet on wax
paper and cut out cookie shapes with your cookie cutter. Remove the scraps of dough and
then with a wide spatula, carefully transfer the shapes from the wax paper to the cookie, spacing
about one inch apart.

 

Rolled Dough

 

Roll any dough scraps between wax paper and continue cutting out cookies until all the
dough is used.

If the dough becomes too warm to handle at any point, refrigerate again briefly.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in upper third of the oven for 6 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are
just slightly colored on top and slightly darker on the edges.

 

Cookie Cutter Heart-Shaped

 

Cool cookies completely.

 

Jam for Heart-Shaped Sandwich Cookies

 

Put jam between 2 cookies.

 

Covering Cookies with Sugar
