Pretty raspberry jam peeks out from buttery shortbread cookies for a festive treat. Make them throughout the year with different cookie cutter shapes. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"I love these cookies! The dough is easy to work with and they're delicious. Every time I make them, they are a hit. I've become famous for these at Christmastime."

"Not overly impressed with this cookie. They did bake nicely with good texture, but they are rather bland. I think it could use more sugar or maybe a lemon or orange flavoring."
