This recipe was given to me by Drooler's Mommy and they are too good not to share. The recipe is a little more work than a regular cookie recipe, so I always double it to make it worth my time.
1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cups flour
Mix all and chill. Preheat oven to 375°. Roll out to approx. 1/4" on floured board. Cut into 1 1/2 " circles. I use the bottom of my canning funnel. Cover with white sugar (I like to drop each circle into a bowl of white sugar). Place on ungreased baking sheet. Prick with fork. Bake 7-9 minutes, but if you have large cookie sheets like mine and can fit 16 cookies onto each, bake 12 minutes. Cool. Put together with Creamy Filling.
1/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 small drops water if needed
1-2 drops food coloring of choice. I like yellow, so I use two drops of neon green since I only have the neon food coloring set.
Cream first four ingredients together, then add coloring.
These are perfect little cookies for a tea part. Best served at room temperature.
