QUICK AND EASY FRUIT FILLED SUGAR COOKIES

1 pkg (20-oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/4 cup your favorite jam or jelly

Preheat oven to 350 degree.

Slice 24 (1/8-inch each) cookies from the dough. Refrigerate remaining dough. Place the slices on ungreased cookie sheets. Spread each of the slices with a half teaspoon of the jam or jelly. Spread to within 1/4-inch of the edge.

Slice the remaining cookie dough into 24 (1/4-inch) slices. Cut a design out of the center of each slice. Place these slices atop the jam or jelly covered cookies. Press edges together to seal each cookie so jam won't escape.

Bake filled cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for a minute. Using a thin spatula, remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: 2 dozen filled cookies

Note: You can bake the designs from the centers until lightly browned, if desired. Sprinkle baked mini cookies with powdered sugar.
