- In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
- Add flour mixture to sugar mixture gradually, mixing well to combine fully.

- Stir in dried cranberries and coconut.
- Flour clean working surface and roll out dough to approx. ¼” thickness.
- Cut an even number of cookies with a round glass or cookie cutter. Use a small cookie cutter to cut a “window” in the middle of half of the sugar cookies.
- Place cut sugar cookies onto baking sheet, spacing about 1½-inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Repeat steps 5 through 7 until dough is used up. Allow sugar cookies to cool completely on wire rack.
- Once cooled, spread thin layer of blueberry jam on “windowless” cookies.
- Place window-cut cookies on top of whole sugar cookies so the jam shows through.
- Enjoy your sugar cookies with loved ones!
