Makes 36 cookies


18-ounce tube sugar cookie dough (such as Pillsbury)
flour for the work surface
to 1 cup jam (any flavor)


  1. Heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Cut the dough crosswise into 2 portions; refrigerate 1 portion. Roll the other one on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thick. Using a small (preferably 2-inch) star-shaped cookie cutter, cut the dough into cookies. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  3. Bake until golden around the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough, rerolling the scraps.
  4. Turn half the cookies upside down and spread with about 1/2 teaspoon of jam each. Sandwich with the remaining cookies.
