1. Cream margarine and sugar in mixing bowl. Add egg, lemon juice and

2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough on lightly floured
surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Use a round 2-inch cookie cutter to
cut out circles from dough. Cut out an inner circle with a smaller
round cookie cutter from half of the circles to make a "cookie ring."

Transfer to wire rack to cool. Spread a small amount of jelly on each
whole circle. Press a cookie ring on top of it. Shake the cookies one
at a time in a bowl of sugar to coat well. Store in a covered dish.
Note: Confectioners' sugar can be used to coat the cookies in place
