Pastel Cream Wafers

Prep 30 mins Bake 375°F 8 mins  per batch
Pastel Cream Wafers
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup  cold butter (no substitutes)
  • 3 - 4  tablespoons  half-and-half or light cream
  • 1  recipe  Powdered Sugar Frosting
  •  Powdered sugar
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place flour in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the half-and-half over part of mixture. Gently toss with a fork and push to side of bowl. Repeat until all is moistened. Form dough into a ball.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough until slightly less than 1/8 inch thick. Using a 1-3/4-inch fluted round cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges start to brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.

4. Spread Powdered Sugar Frosting on bottoms of half of the cookies, using scant 1 teaspoon for each cookie. Top with the remaining cookies, bottoms sides down. Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
