This is the best Sugar Cookie dough I have made. It is a tender dough. I did roll the dough out thicker about 1/4 inch and then put the Jelly on but it was just a big tender cookie. They looked beautiful. My husband wouldn't stop eating them. Great cookie.

These are a fantastic addition to a holiday cookie tray. They not only look lovely but they taste great too. They do take some time to make but are worth it!

This is a great recipe for using a basic cookie dough. I observe that youare directed to remove the design on the top cookie - then throw away the cutouts. This is a bad instruction! Just bake those tiny shapes as individual cookies. You can eat them plain or iced. Rather than using jams or jellies will give you colors for the season, or using the mentioned raisin filling will fit in appropriately at Thanksgiving - or any other season of the year.
