From my mother-in-law Libby. I think this is the one she made. Detective work is hard, lol. They said these would melt in your mouth.
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄3 cup whipping cream
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup sifted icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix butter, flour and whipping cream thoroughly. Chill 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Roll dough 1/8" thick on a lightly floured board.
- Cut into 1-1/2 inch rounds.
- Transfer onto waxed paper heavily sprinkled with sugar, turning to coat both sides.
- Place on ungreased baking sheet; prick in 4 places with fork.
- Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until slightly puffy.
- Put 2 cookies together with filling.
- Blend butter, icing sugar and vanilla together.
- If desired tint pink or green (which I would; the picture is great).
These are delicious! I've been using this recipe for years and even tho they're a bit time consuming, the end result is so very worth it! These delicate little cookies melt in your mouth and are a great recipe for something special! Nice to see it posted here in case I ever lose my cookbook! :) Thank you!
I have been making these cookies for over 30 years - they are light and delicate. Great with a cup of tea in the afternoon - I like to fill mine with cream cheese frosting flavored with almond instead of vanilla. Yum! At Christmas I tint the wafers with red and/or green and leave the filling white. Very pretty!
