Cream Wafer Cookies

Serving idea

Another old fashioned recipe and an old fashioned cookie, that many families just like ours make every single year.  As a matter of fact, my oldest daughter is making these this year to give to some of her college professor's as a small Christmas gift.

This recipe is in my 1964 Betty Crocker Cooky Book - which was handed down to me from my father-in-law.  My husbands parents had received it as a gift in December of 1964 and it's been a favorite of mine since I was lucky enough to receive it.

Cream Wafers

1 c butter
1/3 c whipping cream (liquid form yet)
2 c flour

Mix and chill dough 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375. Roll the dough 1/8" thick. Cut into 1 1/2" rounds. Transfer to wax paper with sugar and coat both sides. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and prick with a fork. Bake 7-8 minutes. Let cool completely.

Sandwich the cookies together with this filling:

1/4 c butter, soft
3/4 c powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1 t vanilla

tint to the colors you wish.

Cooling after baking...
