  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Mix flour, butter, and cream. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

  2. While the dough chills, make the cream filling. Beat 1/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and one teaspoon vanilla until smooth and fluffy.

  3. Tint with food coloring if desired. I typically will split the filling into two or three smaller batches to tint two of them, and leave one white (in this case - we did blue and purple since those are the nursery colors for the new arrival.

  4. Roll 1/3 of the dough at a time to 1/8 inch thick on a floured cloth covered board (keep the remaining dough refrigerated until you are ready to roll).

  5. Cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds.

  6. Transfer the rounds with a metal spatula to a piece of waxed paper that is heavily covered with sugar, and thoroughly coat each side.

  7. Place one inch apart pm an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick each round with a fork about four times. Bake just until set but not brown - about 7-9 minutes.

  8. When the rounds are cooled, ice carefully (there is a lot of butter in these wafers and they will break easily) and sandwich between two rounds.
