Directions:
Mix butter and flour together then add cream; mix. Chill dough as long as overnight. Cut dough in four parts and work with one piece at a time. Roll out to 1/8" thick and cut with 1-1/2" round cutters. Have a plate of granulated sugar ready and dip rounds in the sugar on both sides. Place rounds on ungreased cookie sheet and with the points of fork, pinch each round three times. Bake 7 to 9 minutes. Watch carefully as you don't want them brown. Cool and put two cookies together with the filling below. Makes about five dozen double cookies.
