Lemony Snowflake Sandwiches

Directions

  1. In a large bowl beat butter and shortening with a mixer on medium for 30 seconds. Add next five ingredients (through salt). Beat until combined, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Beat in flour. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill until easy to handle (about 2 hours).
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time until 1/8 inch thick. Using a 2 1/2- to 3-inch snowflake-shape cookie cutter, cut out dough. Using a 1-inch diamond- or circle-shape cookie cutter, cut and remove a diamond from center of half of the cookies. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are very light brown. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
  4. Spread Creamy Lemon Filling on bottoms of cookies without cutout centers. Top with cookies with cutout centers, bottom sides down. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
