Pastel Cream Wafers

These cookies not only look beautiful,
they taste delicious.
I didn't have a cookie cutter small enough so I used a gelatin mold. Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 to 4 tablespoons light cream
or half-and-half 
Sanding sugar or granulated sugar
Powdered Sugar Frosting 
Heat oven to 375. Cut butter into flour in a medium mixing bowl till pieces
are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cream over part of
mixture. Gently toss with a fork and push to side of bowl. Repeat till all is 
moistened. Form into a ball.
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface till sightly less than 1/8 inch thick. Cut
into rounds with a scalloped 1 3/4 inch round cookie cutter. Dip one side of each
round in sugar. Place cutouts, sugared sides up, 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie
sheet. With a fork, prick four parallel rows in each cutout. Bake for 8-10 minutes
or til edges just begin to brown. Transfer to wire racks and cool.
Spread a scant 1 teaspoon Powdered Sugar Frosting on the flat side of half of the cookies.
Top with the remaining cookies, Flat sides down. Makes about 20 sandwiches.
Powdered Sugar Frosting
Stir together 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon softened butter (no substitutes) 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 drop food coloring
and enough light cream or half-half (about 1 tablespoon) to make a spreadable frosting.
To store: Place unfilled cutouts in layers separated by wax paper in an airtight
container; cover. Store at room temperature up to 1 week or freeze up to 3 months.
Fill just before serving.
Hope you enjoy them.
Bon Appetit!

  13. Stopping in by way of Time Travel Thursday w/Liz. Oh, I see BJ just ahead of me. BJ is the one who told me about Liz's blog and that was all in "the beginning" of my (original) blogging. Wow.
    Adorable cookies and the recipe sounds perfect.
    BUT I love your "table setting" That is ever-so-cool. Serves up your cookies for a photo and gives me a few ideas. I'm wondering about its origin - hand drawn? Purchased? Whichever it is, just plain neat!
    Enjoyed my visit! Thanks, Jenn
