  spatula to wire racks. Cool.
  Heat raspberry jam in a small saucepan.  Spread each of the solid
  cookies completely with a think layer of hot preserves. Top each with
  a cut-out cookie; press gently together to make a "sandwich". Place
  on wire rack. Sprinkle tops of cookies with confectioners' sugar.
  Spoon dab of preserves in opening of each cookie; let preserves set
