This was our favorite cookie as children. I always make it for tea parties (mini-size).

Cream Wafers

Makes 5 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup whipping cream
2 cups flour
Filling (below)

Blend butter, cream and flour. Chill dough for 1 hour. Heat oven to 375 deg. Roll dough to 1/8” on lightly floured board. Cut into 1-1/2” rounds [I make 1” size for tea parties]. Put a little sugar on a plate and coat one side with the sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheet; prick 4 times with a fork. Bake 7-9 minutes. Put 2 cookies together with a little filling (see note at end).
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp. vanilla.
Food colorings

Blend first 3 ingredients. Separate into bowls and tint each accordingly.

NOTE: I put the filling into a sandwich bag, clip the corner, and use it to run a bead of icing at the outside edge of one cookie, then place the other on top. The filling is very sweet and a little goes a long way!

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
