I made a few alterations to a friend’s recipe and came up with these sensational jam-filled sandwich cookies.  Family and friends always look forward to them.

Raspberry Dreams Recipe

Raspberry Dreams

2 cups butter, softened

1 cup sugar

4 egg yolks

2 tsp. vanilla

1 drop lemon juice

5 1/3 cups flour

¼ tsp. salt

Filling:   1 jar (12 oz.) seedless raspberry preserves

Icing:   1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 drop lemon juice

1 drop red food coloring

1 to 2 Tbsp. 2% milk

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla and lemon juice.  Combine flour and salt and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.  Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Divide dough into three portions.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion to ¼ inch thickness.  Cut with a 2 inch round cookie cutter.  Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350 F. for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.  Remove to wire racks to cool.

Spread the bottom half of the cookies with raspberry preserves; top with remaining cookies.

For icing, combine the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice, food coloring and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency.  Drizzle over cookies.
