Christmas Cream Wafer

My family makes these every Christmas. These cream wafers are a tad time consuming but so darn addicting to eat. The cookie is very light & flaky & with the buttercream in the middle it really does compliment very nicely. Everytime I make these (and I do mean EVERY time) they are gobbled up in minutes. People love these things. If you want to try them out for yourself here is the recipe I used:

2 c. flour
1 c. butter
1/3 c. whipping or heavy cream
Dish of sugar

Mix, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out 1/3 of dough at a time, 1/8" thick, cut, coat both sides with sugar. Prick with fork about 4 times. Bake until set but not brown (7 to 9 minutes). Cool.

Filling I used the buttercream dream recipe. I don't even use a recipe anymore because I know it by heart, so I just toss in equal amounts of butter & crisco, powdered sugar, vanilla & Milk. Enjoy!!
