1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
3 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Add eggs, yogurt, and vanilla; mix until smooth
Add ALL dry ingredients and stir.
Cover and chill batter for approximately 1 hour

Preheat over to 350 degrees

Cut into 1 ½ inch rounds with cookie cutter.
Place ½ to 1 tsp of jam on half of the rounds; top with remaining rounds.

Lightly seal edges with fork.
