Bake 5 minutes.

Beat in sugar, vanilla & Criscoİ.
Beat at low speed. If it looks curdley add more Criscoİ (up to 3/4 c.)
To assemble, spread frosting between the bottoms of two cookies (sandwich style with flat sides of the cookie on the frosting). Wrap each gob in plastic wrap.

*This is the original recipe but I use Disneyland Frosting - it makes more, is super yummy and not too sweet. (recipe follows).

Personal Notes:
I was given this recipe at my bridal shower and it now hangs framed in our kitchen. I was told a road trip or beach vacation wouldn't be complete without these little gems. Bryan likes them so much he often takes a few and hides them to be sure he gets more than one.
