    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in each cookie with back of teaspoon; fill each indentation with 1/4 teaspoon orange marmalade.
