Eggless Shortbread Sandwich Cookies~~Home Baker's Challenge#3

After pizza and a marvellous marble cake, our this month's Home Baker's Challenge landing towards to the cookies world. This month's host Vijayalakshmi of Virunthu Unna Vanga suggested a humble bunch of cookies, seriously her choice of cookies were just amazing. Definitely all the members of this group would have enjoyed thoroughly this month's challenge as much as the two earlier challenges. I baked 3 cookies out the 4 cookies Viji suggested for this month's challenge, yep each and every selection of cookies viji suggested were stunning and pulled us to make them as much as we can.

Coming to this shortbread sandwich cookies, i baked them just before few days. These shortbread cookies are amazing. I baked a super buttery shortbread cookies which sandwiched them later with some strawberry jam. These cookies looks exactly like the famous Linzer cookie eventhough linzer cookies have nuts and cinnamon in it. Butter in this shortbread dough give a wonderful flavour and trust me these cookies are dangerously addictive. You cant stop just with one cookie and am sure these cookies are big hit among the kids.


Recipe Source: Mom it forward
3+1/2cups Flour
1/4tsp Salt
1+1/2cup Unsalted butter (room temperature)
1cup Sugar
1tsp Vanilla essence
Strawberry jam (as per need)
Confectioner's sugar (as per need for dusting)

In a bowl, beat together the butter,sugar until they turns smooth.

Add the vanill and mix it.

Meanwhile in an another mixing bowl,sift the flour,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 as flat disc,wrap it in plastic and let them sit in fridge for 30minutes to an hour.

Roll the dough as 1/4inch thick in floured surface and cut it with a cookie cutter as plain or fluted cookies.

Count the rounds and divide them in half.

With a small bottle lid, cut a hole from the each round.

Now transfer the cookie rounds to the baking sheet lined over a baking tray with enough space in between;

Arrange them again in fridge for 15minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Now bake the chilled cookies for 15-20minutes until the edges turns lightly brown.

Allow them to cool completely.

Now dust the top of the baked cut-out cookies with confectioners sugar,spread the jam on the flat side of the cookie.

Assemble the cookies as sandwich and store them in a air tightened box and enjoy.

BTW how much is 1/5 cups butter? Coz even my cookie recipe is same as yours. I have used 200 gma butter. So is 1.5 cups =200 or more?
