  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a large piece of parchment or waxed paper, roll out 1/2 recipe all-in-one cookie dough into a 12-inch square. Trim edges with a sharp knife.

  2. Cut square into four 3-inch strips. Refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes.

  3. Spread top side of 3 strips of dough with 1 tablespoon seedless jam. Stack strips, and end with the plain strip. Press stack firmly to adhere. Refrigerate until firm, 20 minutes.

  4. Using a long, serrated knife, cut stack crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and arrange, cut side down.

  5. After forming cookies, place on parchment-lined baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Bake until pale golden, 13 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through.

    they should be sliced 1/4 inch thinck instead of 1/2 inch thick. martha's other recipe says 1/4", and i made them 1/2" thick and although they tasted great, they didn't look as nice, and i obvioulsy only got half as many cookies.

    When I printed this, there was no direction for baking, so I'm back to get it!

    This is very time consuming, but these are ingredients you are very likely to have in your kitchen already, and the presentation is just fantastic. Sure, there are simpler ways of doing this, this is a pretty basic recipe, but...this is the kind of cookie that also gives you visual enjoyment.

    these are just like cookies my mother and grandmother used to make when I was a kid, except instead of all the layering which does seem a bit tedious, she would lay it out flat, spread the jam, and then roll it and then flatten the roll slightly, then cut it, although I am not positive whether she cut it before baking or after, I will ask her, probably before. We used to call these cookies roly poly, and sometimes instead of jam, she would use a chocolate spread. yummy!!

    This looks to difficult. I make these cookies with a cookie press. Use sugar cookie dough and use the flat die form. Press out a long strip on a cookie sheet. Gently add jam and top with another strip of dough. Bake and cut and you have elegant and delicious jam filled cookies.
