2 cups confectioners sugar

Preparation / Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk. Add to crumb mixture just until moistened. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Spread jam on half of the cookies; top each with another cookie. In a small mixing bowl, combine sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth; spread over the cookies. Decorate with red hots before glaze is set. Let dry. Using a small new paintbrush and green food coloring, paint holly leaves on cookies.
