Everyone knows you and your groom are cut out for each other; these monogrammed cookies just drive home the point. Let cookie cutters do the heavy lifting; we used a round ruffly one to get the shape and mini alphabet cutters for the monogram. Between the layers? Sweet-tart rhubarb jam -- another perfect match.

Directions

  • Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla with a mixer. Beat in flour and salt until just combined. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.

  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thick. Cut out with a 1 3/4-inch scalloped round cutter, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet; place in the freezer to harden for 30 minutes. Cut out letter or heart shapes from half the cookies, then return to freezer for another 15 minutes.

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. Bake until cookies just begin to brown around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature about 5 days.

  • Shortly before serving, spread scant 1 teaspoon jam on whole cookies; gently top with cut-out cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 3 hours. Finished cookies can sit at room temperature up to 3 hours.

Cook's Notes

We used mini alphabet cutters and a heart aspic cutter by Ateco.
