Method:

For cookies:

  • Beat sugar, butter, sour cream and vanilla.
  • Beat in eggs. Add soda, salt and enough flour to make moderately stiff dough.
  • Chill for 20 minutes to 1 hour for easier handling. Roll dough to about ¼-inch thickness.
  • Cut cookies with a linzer cookie cutter or use small round cookie cutter and smaller designed cookie cutter to make tops and bottoms.
  • Bake at 375°F for 5-6 minutes; do not brown. Cool on rack.
  • Beat filling ingredients until smooth.
  • Frost bottom cookie with small amount of filling.
  • Top with about ½ tsp raspberry jam in the middle of the cookie (heat jam in a small bowl in the microwave to make it easier to spread).
  • Place top cookie (with cut-out design) on jam.
