Just plain old Titebond will work fine. Get a brayer or use a brush so you can spread it evenly and use another piece of 1/2” MDF as a caul on the top to make sure it clamps evenly. Be sure to glue it up a little oversized and then trim it when it’s glued to be the final dimension and square.

Hinges will be fine as long as you’re screwing into the face of the MDF. Going into the core through the side is weaker.
