  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
    1 cup white sugar
    2 egg yolks
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    pinch of salt

    For the glaze:
    2 tablespoons light cream
    2/3 cup icing sugar
    1/2 cup thick raspberry jam


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla until fluffy.
    In another mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; blend into creamed mixture until well-blended.
    Gather dough into a ball and divide into two flat rounds. Wrap each in plastic and refrigerate at least an hour or up to one day. Dough can be frozen for up to two weeks.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured work surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Using a 3-inch star cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place on parchment-lined baking sheets.

    To make glaze, mix cream and sugar in a bowl until smooth and creamy.
    Dip the warm cookies with the cut-out center into glaze or use a brush to glaze. Sandwich 2 glazed cookies together. Let icing set for one hour.
    Melt raspberry jam. Cool. Place a small star cutter in center of sandwiched cookies. Pour about 1/2 teaspoon of the raspberry in each cookie center. Let set util firm.

    Store cookies in covered container, separating layers with waxed paper, no more than 1 day at room temperature or up to 2 weeks in the freezer.
