Jam Sandwich Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Favorite jam - raspberry, strawberry, saskatoon or mixed berry.

Cream butter and both sugars well.  Add in corn syrup, eggs, vanilla and beat well.

Mix in flour, baking powder and salt.  Roll out to about 4 mm on lightly floured surface and with a round cookie cutter, cut out about 7 cm circles.

Place bottom circles on cookie sheet and spread jam on cookie - not too close to the edges.  On top circle, cut out center to see jam and place on top of bottom circle with jam spread.  Slightly press outside edges to just stick.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about 8 to 10 minutes.

I save the top layer cut out, bake and sprinkle with icing sugar.
