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.
This cookie is so light and airy and the filling is very light too...just the right amount of sweetness! Actually, I'm making this frosting recipe a "must have" in my cookbook!!!
There is no sugar in the "wafer" part, so they aren't super sweet, but the cream filling makes these pretty good for something different. You could change the coloring up, too, for different holidays if you like. I would possibly make it again.
