Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cut 1 cup of the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cream and form the dough into a ball.
  3. Roll dough out 1/2 inch thick and cut with a small round cutter. Roll cut circles in granulated sugar and place on ungreased cookies sheets. Prick cookies a few times with a fork.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cookies cool before frosting.
  5. To Assemble: Frost bottoms of half of the cookies and place the remaining cookies on top to make sandwich cookies.
  6. To Make Buttercream Frosting: Beat 1/2 cup of the butter until fluffy. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar. Beat in the evaporated milk and the vanilla. Adjust milk and confectioners' sugar amounts to get buttercream to a good spreading consistency.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These are great cookies that I've been making for years. I think the recipe should say 'roll to 1/8th of an inch in thickness' as opposed to 1/2 (which would give you really thick cookies). Sometimes the dough is too dry to roll easily- feel free to add as much cream as necessary to get a dough of good rolling consistency- otherwise, the cookies will have a tough texture. Also, MAKE SURE to prick the cookies! One time I didn't, and they blew up like balloons.

These were so good. I understand what the other reviewer was saying, but these are tea cookies so they should not be too sweet. We really loved them!

overall the cookies were okay. The frosting was really good but the cookie just had a really weird texture. It didn't have much flavor either so i added some almond extract. Good, but bland.
