What you need for the crust: 1 cup of soft butter, 1/3 cup of whipping cream, and 2 cups of sifted flour.
First you need to mix the butter, whipping cream, and sifted flour then let chill for 2 to 3 hours. Next you roll out on to a floured surface (roll about 1/8 thick). Thirdly you need to cut out the cookies using a small cookie cutter that’s about 1 1/2 and only roll 1/3 of the dough at a time so you can keep the remaining dough chilled. Then place aluminum foil onto the cookie sheet and sprinkle sugar on the foil before placing the cookies onto it. Finally you prick each cookie 4 times with a fork and then bake at 375 for 7 to 10 minutes. After the cookies are done baking you will let them cool.
Filling for cream wafers: ¼ cup of soft butter, ¾ cup of confectionary sugar, 1 egg yolk, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
First mix the butter, confectionary sugar, egg yolk, and the vanilla together. Next put any of food coloring that you want then spread onto the wafers after that press the cookie together like a sandwich.
The reason I chose this recipe was because its my favorite thing that we make on Christmas. My grandma every year made these for our family because of that it made it like a tradition. I would recommend this to other people who like making cookies for a special event.
