1/3 C. whipping cream
2 C. all purpose flour

Directions:
Directions:
Mix thoroughly butter, cream and flour. Separate into 3 balls and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for several hours. Take one piece of dough out of fridge at a time. Roll out on floured board to about 1/8" thick. Cut into circles. Transfer rounds to a piece of waxed paper that is heavily covered with granulated sugar, turn each round so that both sides are coated with sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and prick with tines of fork at least 4 times. Bake 7 to 9 mins. at 375 (watch closely) or until just set, but not brown. Cool, put cookies together in pairs with generous amount of filling.

Filling:
Cream 1/4 C. soft buter or margarine with 3/4 C. confectioner's sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Tint with few drops of food coloring.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom started making these when we were kids at Christmas. The recipe was originally in Betty Crocker cookbooks. I make them every Christmas also -- however, I use the filling for clothespins rather than the filling above. We make the cookies as tiny as possible (mom used to use a shot glass I think for the cutter) and put a lot of filling in them. They melt in your mouth. Greg's wife, Joleen, loves these so much she wants me to make a giant sized one for her birthday instead of cake!
