- Other fruit preserves can be used in this cookie as a variation.
- Cut-out cookies seem to brighten any celebration. For best results, roll dough on a lightly floured surface from the center to the edges. Measure the thickness as you go to assure perfect results. Cut the dough into shapes using floured cookie cutters, cutting as close together as possible. Use a pancake turner or wide metal spatula to transfer cookies from the floured surface to the cookie sheet.
