Exercise Two: Rebecca Aleshire

Cream Wafers

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.


  1. Those are adorable and they look like they would be really good! You could also use different colors and make the cookies festive for any holiday. It also seems like a relatively simply recipe that could work for almost anyone. I have never had this type of cookie and think it would be awesome to try. Most of the cookies I have seen at chirstmans celebrations are usually sugar cookies and peanut butter blossoms, so it's really interesting to see a different take on Christmas cookies.

  2. I love how diverse and magical cookie recipes are. They're are literally so many of them but each and every one is something totally unique on its own so it makes it fun to try all the different ones offered. These sound so yummy, and I'm always looking for an excuse to break my diet and bake something new. These will be really fun to try, sandwich cookies are my favorite, and these remind me of Oreo's. I also liked that this recipe is something that you made with your family and the tradition that it held for you, I have so many recipes like this in my family too. Like I said in my blog post, our get togethers always revolve around the recipes.
