Updated Oct 13, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups all purpose or unbleached flour
  • 1 1/4 cups any flavor preserves
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1

    Heat oven to 375°F. On lightly floured surface, roll out 1/3 of dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated). Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch fluted round cookie cutter. Place half of cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Cut 1-inch shapes from centers of remaining cookies. Place cookies and small cutouts 1 inch apart on separate ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake at 375°F. For small cookies, bake 6 minutes; for large cookies, bake 7 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool 5 minutes or until completely cooled.

    Spread bottom of each whole cookie with about 1 teaspoon preserves. Sprinkle powdered sugar over cookies with cut-out centers. To make each sandwich cookie, place one powdered sugar cookie over preserves on whole cookie.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Sandwiched Sugar Cookies Since the smal cut-out centers take less time to bake than the cookies, arrange the centers together on one baking sheet and bake them separately from the cookies. The cut-out centers are not used for the sandwich cookies.
