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.
- 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.
