Yield: 5 dozen
|2 cups||All-purpose flour|
|1 cup||Butter or marg., softened|
|¼ cup||Butter or marg., softened|
|¾ cup||Powdered sugar|
|⅓ cup||Heavy whipping cream|
|Few drops food coloring|
Mix flour, softened butter and whipping cream. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Heat oven to 375. Roll about ⅓ of the dough at a time ⅛" thick on floured cloth-covered board [keeping remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll]. Cut into 1½" circles.
Transfer circles with a spatula to waxed paper coated with sugar.
Turn each circle so both sides are coated with sugar. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Prick each circle with a fork 4 times. Bake 7-9 min or until just set but not brown. Cool. Just before serving make sandwiches with ½ tsp of the creamy filling.
For the filling, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Tint with food color if desired. Stir in a few drops of water if the mixture is too stiff to spread.
