Ingredients:
1 cup cake flour or all purpose flour (100g=3.5oz.)

your favorite spreads

Directions:
1. Place flour, powdered sugar, and butter in a large Ziploc bag, then mix well.

3. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Cut out the dough with cookie cutters.
4. Place cocoa powder or Matcha powder in a tea bag. Place striped stencil over the cookie and apply the powder. For the checked pattern, you want to rotate it 90 degrees and apply again. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
5. Bake at 170C (338F) for about 12 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet or a wire rack.
6. Spread the whole disks with jam, nutella, or any spread you like, then top with the disks with holes.
