Jam-Filled Star Sandwiches

A delicious shortbread cookie sweetened with jam and powered sugar. Roll out the dough and use a 3-inch cookie cutter to make your stars, then use a 1 or 1/2-inch star to remove the centers from half of them. Bake and cool. Spread blueberry and raspberry jam on the whole cookies. Sprinkle powered sugar on the remaining stars and assemble.
