I’d use Titebond III and put weights on the outer frame until the glue sets up. I’d be concerned with hinges in MDF especially if the doors are to be used quite a bit, But if you must, after aligning the hinges and screwing them in place, I’d take all the hinges off and put Titebond II in the screw holes with a tooth pick and let it make a harder seat for the screws to give them a chance of holding better.

Using contact cement, you have to make perfect alignment when the two meet because there is no chance for movement once they touch. If you have a way to do that, it will work good too. I always like to roll the piece with a weighted roller when using contact cement to insure full contact everywhere on the part.
