Easiest Christmas Cookie Recipe EVER!



Sugar Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients:
1 tube of sugar cookie dough (or you can make your own sugar cookie dough if you're feeling ambitions!)

Seedless Raspberry Jam

Sprinkles

Frosting:
Confectioner's sugar
Water
(you could also use milk or lemon juice, or mix it up with some butter, depending on how you like your frosting!)

Directions:
You may notice that there really aren't any measurements! If you like precise measurements, sorry! :)

1. Bake the sugar cookies according to directions, either by slicing the cookie dough or rolling it into 1 tbsp balls--totally up to you. Set them on a wire rack to cool.

2. Once the sugar cookies are cool, take half of them and spread a little bit (about 1 tbsp) of the jelly on the bottom (the bottom should be a little bit flat because of the cookie sheet). Put the other half of the cookies on top, flat side down. Now they're little sandwiches! Let them sit for about 30 minutes, until they're pretty well stuck together. You can refrigerate them if you want.

3. Make the frosting by putting some confectioner's sugar (start with cup) and a couple of tablespoons of water in a bowl, and mix. Add confectioner's sugar and water (or other liquid--adding a little lemon juice would be really tasty with the raspberry jam!) until you get a good consistency--it needs to be thin enough to go on the cookies, but thick enough to stay on.

4. Dip one end of the cookie in the frosting (like you're dipping an oreo in milk), then dip in the sprinkles to coat. Set on wax paper. You can leave them out to dry or put them in the refrigerator, but you want the frosting to harden.

** You can really make this into any type of cookie you want! Put nutella in the middle and dip in melted chocolate chips? YUM!**

ENJOY!
