Apricot Cookies

A dainty cookie that is perfect for tea time or an afternoon snack!

These cookies only have three ingredients- butter, powdered sugar, and flour. Those simple ingredients combined make a soft flaky cookie that has no rise. Two cookies are sandwiched together with apricot preserves in the middle and then baked. This leads to a wafer like cookie with a center of apricot goodness.

Thank you to my mother in law for this fun new cookie!
