A delicate, melt-in-your mouth little sandwich cookie.


  • For the wafers:
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

  • granulated sugar

  • For the creamy filling:
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or other flavoring such as almond or peppermint)

  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter

  • food color if desired


  • Make the wafers:
  • Mix flour, margarine and cream into a dough and chill for an hour. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Roll out half at a time to 1/8″ thick and cut in 1-1/2″ rounds. Carefully dip both sides of cookie in sugar and place on ungreased baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Poke with a fork 4 times and bake 7-9 min. at 375 F.
  • Make the filling:
  • Mix all filling ingredients until smooth, add a few drops of water if needed. For different color fillings, divide into two or three portions and color each individually. You may also flavor each individually.
  • Assemble the cookies:
  • When cool fill with filling and sandwich together.

These are a blast from my past. My mom made these every Christmas when I was a kid. After working with the delicate dough myself for the first time last year, I understand all the cussing she did :) Practice helps and I made these many times last year. Good times!

These were awesome. My nieces could not get enough of them. Nephews said they were too girlie. So the last time I made them I made some fudge buttercream for the center and crushed butterscotch candies real fine instead of dipping them in sugar and they never realized it was the same cookies
