Ingredients

  • 2

    cups butter, softened

  • 1

    cup white sugar

  • 4

    cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup raspberry preserves

  • 24

    maraschino cherries

  • 8

    cups confectioners' sugar

  • 1/2

    cup milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour until well blended. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into rounds using a cookie cutter. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Sandwich one teaspoon of jam between two cookies. Repeat with remaining cookies. In a medium bowl, gradually stir the milk into the confectioners' sugar until the icing is of a spreadable consistency. Spread on top of the sandwiched cookies. Top each cookie with half of a cherry while the icing is still wet.
