It’s cookie time so I made these as sorta practice cookies.
I made up some gluten free cookie dough and baked a matching number of squares for the bottom and squares with cutouts for the tops.
I dusted the tops with powdered sugar and put a spoonful of jam on the center of the bottoms.
Then one broke and I had to eat it.

cut with a 2-inch square cookie cutter with fluted edges to form cookies. Cut out centers of half of the cookies with a 1-inch square cookie cutter with fluted edges. Bake cookies at 375° for 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
