READY IN: 50mins




  • COOKIES: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolk; blend well.
  • Add the flour; mix well.
  • If necessary, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill about 15 minutes for easier handling.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Shape dough into 1" balls; place 2" apart on ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  • With a fork dipped in flour, flatten each cookie in one direction to a 1 1/2" round.
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Cool for 1 minute on the sheets; transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, make the FROSTING: In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat until light golden brown, stirring constantly.
  • Remove pan from heat; stir in the remaining frosting ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth.
  • Spread a scant 1 tsp frosting between 2 cooled cookies, flat sides inward.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
