Preparation Time: 45 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Additional: 1 hr
- 1 cup butter, softened
- ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar for decoration
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 drops red food coloring
Make wafers: Mix butter, cream, and sifted flour with an electric mixer until well combined. Chill for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sprinkle white sugar over a sheet of waxed paper.
On a floured board, roll out 1/3 of the dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut about 60 wafers with a 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Press both sides of each wafer into the white sugar, then transfer to ungreased baking sheets. Prick each cookie about 4 times with a fork.
Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes. Let cookies cool.
Make filling while wafers are cooling: Blend butter, confectioners’ sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla together with an electric mixer. Tint with food coloring.
Spread filling onto a cooled wafer and top with a second wafer. Press gently to seal. Repeat with remaining wafers and filling.
