Sandwich Stars
Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  butter
  • 3/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  egg
  • 1  tablespoon  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1  recipe Browned Butter Filling
Directions

1. For browned butter, in small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Reduce heat; cook until butter is light brown (12 minutes). Remove from heat; pour in large bowl. Chill 1-1/2 hours or freeze 45 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Set aside 4 teaspoons browned butter. Beat remaining 2/3 cup butter on medium to high 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt; beat to combine, scraping bowl. Beat in egg, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in as much flour as you can; stir in remaining. Divide dough in half. On floured surface, roll half the dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness; using 2-1/2-inch stars, cut out dough. Use small star cutter to cut out centers of half of large stars. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on wire rack. Spread filling, top with cutout cookie. Makes 18 sandwich cookies.
