2. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours (I leave it in the fridge overnight).

3. Cut dough into 4 pieces. Roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough with desired cookie cutter shape. Make a large hole in the centre of half of your cookie shapes. Place 1 inch appart on a cookie sheet (I use baking paper instead of greasing the cookie sheets).

4. Bake at 355F for 7 to 10 minutes until edges are light golden brown.

5. When cool, spread each solid cookie with strawberry jam, put the cookie with the hole in the middle on top, and sprinkle with icing sugar.
