I don't have exact prep will also make (depending on size) about 50 cookies that are not sandwiched with the jelly, and about 25 if they are sandwich style. They are melt in your mouth either way! I've refrigerated the dough at least 15 min sometimes to use in a cookie gun to make shaped butter cookies as well. You can also color the dough depending on occasion..or use madelaine cookie pans
