  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.

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.

I made over 1000 of these wonderful cookies for family and friends! EVERY one of the people I gave them to they gave me rave reviews! I couldn't stop eating them as I was frosting them! They are...

Ours turned out very tender and light, so much so that they were falling apart when we frosted them. My 6 year old helped and we had a good time. The kids did not like them though so I probably ...

taste a bit like whipped short bread but infinitely better :)

made it for an international night and it was a big hit!! every one loved it!!
