Jam filled cookies

1 cup butter, melted (that's two sticks)
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder (or 1 teaspoon non-alcoholic vanilla extract)
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
Strawberry jam (or any kind of jam you like)

-Preheat oven to 350
-Melt butter and while it cools off mix dry ingredients.
-Mix all ingredients together with a spoon until well blended.
-spread dough with rolling pin and cut into circles using a small cup.
-Place dough circles onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 13 minutes or until light golden.
-Let cookies cool and then spread some jam on one cookie and place another one on top.
-Sprinkle with some confectioners sugar for decoration

If you'd like to make the cookies with a hole in the middle, cut out a smaller circle from the dough before you bake the cookies. From each pair of cookies cut out a smaller circle from one of them.
