1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
Confectioners' sugar for dusting cookies
Using an electric mixer, beat butter for 30 seconds at medium speed, until creamy. Add the jam and beat until blended, scraping down the side of the bowl as necessary.
To assemble cookies, spread a heating teaspoon of raspberry buttercream onto bottom of a cookie. Top with another cookie to form sandwich. Repeat with remaining cookies.
Yield: 50 sandwich cookies
