Sandwich your favorite jam in between two star-shaped sugar cookies (made from storebought dough) for an easy, fruity cookie treat. 
Makes about 36 two-inch sandwich cookies


+ Add To Shopping List
1 18-ounce tube sugar cookie dough (such as Pillsbury)
Flour for the work surface
3/4 to 1 cup jam (any flavor)


Heat oven to 350° F.

Cut the dough crosswise into 2 portions; refrigerate 1 portion.

Roll the other one on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thick. Using a small (preferably 2-inch) star-shaped cookie cutter, cut the dough into cookies. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Bake until golden around the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Repeat with the remaining dough, rerolling the scraps. Turn half the cookies upside down and spread with about 1/2 teaspoon of jam each. Sandwich with the remaining cookies.

In Advance: Bake the cookies the day before and store them at room temperature. Sandwich them with the jam on the day of the party.
