Tea-time Sandwich Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softenend
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
1-3 tsp milk
In small mixer bowl, combine flour, butter, and whipping cream. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well
mixed (2-3 minutes). Divide dough into thirds; wrap in
plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours). Heat oven to 375*F.
On well floured surface, roll out dough, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with 1 1.2 inch round cookie cutter. Dip both sides of each cookie in sugar.
Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets; prick all over with fork. Bake for 6-9 minutes or until slightly puffy but not brown. Cool slightly; carefully remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely. In small mixer bowl combine all filling ingredients except milk and food coloring.
Beat at medium speed, gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. If desired, tint with food coloring. Carefully put cookies together in pairs with scant 1/2 teaspoonful filling for each sandwich.
