Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1
    cup butter, softened
  • 1/2
    cup powdered sugar
  • 2
    cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt

Frosting

  • 3/4
    cup marshmallow creme
  • 1/3
    cup butter, softened
  • 2/3
    cup powdered sugar

Filling

  • 3
    tablespoons red raspberry preserves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir 1 cup butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar until well blended. Stir in flour and salt until well mixed. If necessary, knead with hands to form a soft dough.
  • 2
    On floured surface, roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 1 3/4-inch round or scalloped cookie cutter. Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Using 3/4- to 1-inch round or scalloped cookie cutters, cut out and set aside centers of half of the cookies.
  • 3
    Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat marshmallow creme and 1/3 cup butter with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in 2/3 cup powdered sugar on low speed until fluffy and creamy.
  • 5
    Spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons frosting on bottom of each whole cookie; top with 1/2 teaspoon preserves. Top with remaining cookies with centers cut out, bottom sides down.

  • Bake the cutout centers 4 to 6 minutes and, if desired, frost with any extra frosting.
  • Prepare and bake the cookies up to 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container. Frost and fill up to 1 hour before serving.
