Holiday Raspberry Cookies


During the holiday season, I love to bake as gifts for family, friends and coworkers. Everybody loves to receive a tin of beautiful, jewel colored cookies and the Holiday Raspberry Cookies from the Savor the Seasons cookbook are the perfect cookie!

Sift the flour into the mixture and mix well. Roll or pat the dough on a floured work surface. Cut with a cookie cutter and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Spread preserves over half the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
