Italian Cookies

One of my childhood memories was going to the Italian Bakery with my mom. My favorite cookies were the butter cookies that were sandwiched together by jam and then dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. They are also the green and pink leafy looking ones. Yum! I now live thousands of miles away and can't find them anywhere. So what is a baker to do - create my own!! These cookies are piped with a pastry bag and a Wilton 1M tip.
