Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the 6 tablespoons of cold butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cream over the mixture and toss gently with a fork. Repeat with the remaining cream until all is moistened. Form into a ball.
  4. Roll the dough to slightly less than 1/8 inch thick. Cut into rounds with a 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Sprinkle one side of each round with sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, sugar side up.
  5. Prick each round in four parallel rows with a fork.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Remove to a rack and cool completely.
  7. Make filling as follows. Stir together the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon softened butter, vanilla, food coloring, and enough of the 1 tablespoon cream to make it spreadable.
  8. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of the filling on the flat side of half of the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies, flat side down.

This recipe has been passed down in my husband's family since the mid-sixties! If they aren't made at Easter and Christmas, there is going to be trouble!
