Ingredients

1 package (20 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4 cup raspberry jam or jelly

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice cookie dough into 24 (1/8-inch) slices. Refrigerate remaining dough. Place slices 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Spread each slice with 1/2 teaspoon of jam to within 1/4 inch of edge. Set aside. Slice remaining dough into 24 (1/4-inch) slices. Cut 1-inch star shape out of center of each cookie slice. Place cookie slices on jam topped cookies; press edges slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 14 minutes until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely. Makes 24 really nice cookies for Christmas.
