Small Cookie Sunday: Cream Wafers
Type: Dessert
Serves: 48
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • ⅓ cup cream
  • About ½ cup sugar, on a small plate
  • One egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cold butter
  1. Cut cold butter and flour together until butter is in small pieces. Add cream, stir just until beginning to hold together, press into a disk. Roll out on a floured board to ⅛ inch thick. Cut into 1-1/2 inch rounds. They are especially pretty with a scallop-edged cutter. Prick each round two times with a fork. Spray water over the tops of the rounds, or brush with water to help make the sugar adhere. Drop each wafer onto the sugared plate, then place on cookie sheet sugar side up.
  2. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes, or until just barely beginning to turn brown. Remove and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  3. While they are cooling, make the filling. Beat softened butter, egg yolk and vanilla until soft and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and mix until incorporated.
  4. When the wafers are completely cooled, assemble the cookies. Put two wafers together with cream filling.
