Feel free to use lemon or lime juice and zest in place of the orange in these raspberry jam and buttercream sandwich cookies. Don’t be tempted to increase the amount of citrus though because it can easily overwhelm the vanilla and raspberry flavours.

Icing and Jam Filled Cookies FAQs

Can I make raspberry jam and buttercream sandwich cookies ahead?

he cookies actually freeze pretty well. However, if you add the buttercream and jam, they won’t thaw out without becoming soggy, so it’s best to freeze them unfilled.

Why do you have to chill the cookies with filling dough?

Don’t omit chilling the raspberry jam and buttercream sandwich cookies dough in the refrigerator. The point of doing this is so the dough doesn’t spread out too much on the baking tray. If you don’t chill the dough for these cookies with preserves, the cookies are going to spread out on the baking sheet and then their shapes will distort. So it’s best to chill the dough for a minimum of one hour. Chill if overnight if you want to start your orange sugar cookies a day in advance.
