Favorite Ingredients Friday - Cookie Edition

It's cookie time. Time to start deciding what cookies to bake this holiday season. I haven't made these in a while. I'm sure it's to Jim's dismay as they're his favorite cookie. When we first started getting to know each other, we would mail a package to the other once a month. This is how we share our favorite books, movies, music, etc... In one of the packages that I sent him, I included these cookies.

Jim's Favorite Jelly Cookies

1. ½ cup powdered sugar
2. ¾ cup butter or margarine, softened
3. 1 cup all purpose flour
4. ½ cup cornstarch
5. jelly
6. powdered sugar

Mix powdered sugar and butter in food processor until smooth. Add flour and cornstarch and pulse until mixed.

At this point, I used to put the cookie dough in a spritzer tube and chill it. My lazier version is to use a small ice-cream-type scoop (about 1 oz) and scoop small balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes until edges turn light brown. These cookies will not brown all over. Be careful not to overbake. I usually double this recipe.

When the cookies have cooled, spread a little jelly on one cookie and place another on top. Sprinkle cookie sandwich with powdered sugar. I use seedless blackberry jelly. I've also used seedless raspberry jelly.
