Italian "S" or Sandwich Cookies

My grandmother made these in shapes of "s" and also candycane shapes. They also make great sandwich cookies that we filled with raspberry jam or really any jam you like. Then we would dip them in melted chocolate, then in sprinkles of all kinds of colors and chopped nuts.
