  1. Combine the 1 cup butter, whipping cream and flour thoroughly. Chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll dough out to 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Transfer rounds to a tray or waxed paper sprinkled heavily with white sugar, turning to coat both sides with sugar. Place sugar coated rounds on an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick in four places with a fork, forming a "prick box".

  5. To Make The Creamy Butter Filling: Blend 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, egg yolk and vanilla until smooth. If desired tint with food coloring.

They take a little time but are worth the effort. Instead of making a fork prick square on each cookie I found it easier to make three fork pricks in a row. When I did the square sometimes the...

I've know these cookies to be called CREME WAFFERS because they melt in your MOUTH.. and they get better each day!!! These are a must have every holiday season. I double the recipe and match t...

I got compliments on these shortbread type cookies. Some tips: don't try to do elaborate cookie cutter shapes as these cookies are too crumbly. Also, make sure they're a nice golden brown before...

These cookies are cute but just way too buttery for me. I kept mine refrigerated because of the raw egg yolk in the filling...so that may be why they seemed so greasy.

Simply Addictive. We did cookie baskets for Xmas this year and this was a hit. Had husbands and wifes ticked off that one or the other ate more than their share of this cookie. We stuffed the...

Sorry, but we didn't like these very much. They were very easy to make - a little time consuming with the chilling, rolling, cutting and dredging with sugar, but that's just par for the course....

I made a batch of these today, exactly as written, and they are exquisite little bites. I didn't have a small round cookie cutter, so I used a plastic medicine cup that came with my kids' cough...

Didn't have any trouble with the dough crumbling. Followed recipe exactly.
