Vanilla Santa's Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1  large  egg
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1 3/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1  recipe  Raspberry Filling, (recipe below)
Directions

1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In large mixing bowl beat butter on medium 30 seconds. Add sugar; beat well. Beat in egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Beat in as much flour as you can; stir in remaining by hand.

2. Divide dough in half. Shape each half in a 7-inch log about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. (For small cookies, shape dough in 10-inch logs about 1 inch in diameter). Wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper. Freeze 2 to 3 hours or until firm enough to slice.

3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut logs in 1/4-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until edges and tops of cookies are firm. Transfer to wire rack; cool completely.

4. Spread the flat side of half the large cookies with 1 tablespoon Raspberry Filling (use 2 teaspoons filling for small cookies). Top with remaining cookies, flat sides to filling. Makes 22 large/30 small sandwiches.
