2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups cold LAND O LAKES® Butter
2/3 cup apricot, raspberry or peach all-fruit spread


1 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons almond-flavored liqueur or orange juice


Combine flour and salt in large bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add sour cream. Stir until dough forms a ball (2 to 3 minutes). Cover; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Heat oven to 400°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place half of circles 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Cut small circle with 3/4-inch round cookie cutter in center of remaining circles. Brush one side of donut-shaped cookies with water; place on top of circles on baking sheet moistened-side down.

Spoon rounded 1/4 teaspoonful fruit spread in center of each cookie. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Cool completely.

Stir together powdered sugar and enough liqueur in small bowl for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
