Easter Cream Wafers

9 Mar

These little sandwich cookies were always my favorite thing about Easter.  Bella found the cookie cutters in spring shapes – aren’t they just the cutest?!

The cookies are quite delicate, so make sure they’re completely cool before frosting.I used a basic butter frosting.  Divide into four bowls and color in pastels.

Cream Wafers

  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1/3 c whipping cream
  • 2 c flour
  • Granulated sugar

Mix butter, cream and flour with an electric mixer.  Cover and chill.

Heat oven to 375°.

Roll about 1/3 of dough at a time to 1/8″ thick.  Keep remaining dough chilled.  Cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds or shapes.  Pour granulated sugar into a shallow dish, and coat both side of each cookie with sugar.   Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Prick with fork.

Bake 7 – 9 minutes or just until set, but not brown.  Cool,  then frost with colored icing to make sandwiches.
