- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 drop each red and green food coloring
- In a small bowl, beat butter, flour and cream. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until easy to handle.
- Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 1-1/4-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with sugar. Prick each cookie 3-4 times with a fork.
- Bake 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
- In a small bowl, combine butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough cream to achieve desired consistency. Remove half to another bowl; tint one portion of filling with red food coloring and the other half with green. Carefully spread filling on bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Yield: 2 dozen.

Reviews for Cream Wafers
"This is how I adjust it: 1 cup butter, 2 cups flour, 1/3 cup whipping cream."
"Love these cookies! I tend to make them for various holidays and just use different colors....always a hit! Since I don't have an actual cookie cutter that size, I used a top from an empty spice container. Maybe a little too small. I made a double batch and ended up with over 12 dozen sandwiches!"
"These are the classic cookie for weddings. And so delicious, delicate. I've been making these for years and always rolled them out, what a pain.... such good advice to roll them into logs and cut them into slices! It made the whole process way easier."
"Instead of rolling out the dough, I make the dough into several logs, wrap them in waxed paper or plastic wrap...refrigerate until solid and then cut the logs into 1/4" slices. You can use dental floss to cut these instead of a knife...they keep their shape better instead of getting squished. Really saves time!!"
"This is pretty easy to make. I found it only made 14 sandwich cookies though. I think the printed cookie count is for the cookies prior to being assembled. I flavored the filling with raspberry and lime. I also had to extend the cooking time to 14 minutes."
