Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled, plus more for the work surface
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (do not overmix).
  3. Form the dough into 2 disks and wrap in plastic. Chill until firm, at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
  4. Heat oven to 375° F with the racks in the upper and lower thirds. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Working with 1 disk at a time (keep the remaining disks chilled), on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out ¼ inch thick. Using a lightly floured 1½-inch round cookie cutter, cut the dough into circles and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. (If the dough becomes too soft, chill briefly on a baking sheet.)
  5. Bake the cookies, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and dust the tops with ½ cup of the confectioners’ sugar.
  6. Spread half the cookies with ½ teaspoon jam each, then sandwich with the rest of the cookies. Just before serving, sprinkle the cookies with the remaining ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar.
  7. Storage suggestion: Keep the cookies at room temperature, between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container, for up to 2 days.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
