Swedish Creme Cookies

Cookie Dough Ingredients:

1/2 pound softened butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 cups flour

Mix together, chill in fridge for at least an hour. When dough is cold, roll out with rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out round cookies, Oreo size, with a round cookie cutter or small glass.

Dip one side in granulated sugar (we colored ours green first with some food coloring) and place on ungreased cookie sheet sugar side up. Prick rounds with fork and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Frosting Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp vanilla
food coloring (optional)

Mix together frosting ingredients in bowl. Use some food coloring if you like. Spread frosting onto a cookie round and top with another round. End result should look like a Double Stuf Oreo.

Commentary: We used green and red food coloring in the frosting, and various Christmas cookie cutter shapes to make trees, bells, and stars, along with the rounds.
