Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, white sugar, ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl beat the egg and 1/4 cup of milk. Add this to the crumb mixture until the dough is moistened. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Once cool spread jam on half of the cookies then top each with another cookie.
  5. To Make Glaze: Combine the confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla until smooth. Spread glaze over the cookie and decorate with red cinnamon candy before the glaze is set. Let dry. Using a small new paintbrush and green food coloring, paint holly leaves on cookies.

I agree this is a time-consuming recipe, but it is definitely worth it! I have made these several times and always get many compliments. I even made them at Easter using an oval cookie cutter and decorated them like Easter eggs. This year I will make Christmas trees and Snowmen. Use your imagination!

my all time favorite christmas cookie. my whole family loves these. yes, they are time consuming to make, but so worth it. For a crispier cookie, roll the dough thinner, for a softer cookie, go slightly thicker. These freeze well. Enjoy!

very tasty cookies. They are quite time-consuming to decorate, though it is worth it to see a beautiful finished product.
