How to Make Eggless Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

  • In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until they turn smooth.
  • Add the vanilla and mix.
  • Meanwhile in another bowl, sift the flour and salt. Add gradually to the butter-sugar mixture and combine well to make a soft dough.
  • Dump onto a surface dusted with flour, shape it into a flat disc, wrap in plastic and let it sit in fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface and cut it with a cookie cutter into plain or fluted cookies.
  • Count the cookie rounds and divide them in half.
  • With a small bottle lid, cut a hole in each round.
  • Now transfer the cookie rounds to a baking sheet lined over a baking tray, leaving enough space in between.
  • Keep them again in fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Now bake the chilled cookies for 15-20 minutes until the edges turn light brown.
  • Allow them to cool completely.
  • Dust the top of the Bake cut-out cookies with confectioner's sugar and spread the jam on the flat side.
  • Assemble the cookies like a sandwich and store them in an airtight box.
