Christmas Cream Wafers

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration

Mix flour and butter thoroughly. Stir in heavy cream and mix well. Chill for an hour.
Preheat oven to 375° degrees. Roll out half the dough at a time on lightly floured board to 1/8 inch thick. Cut in 1½" rounds using a glass or cookie cutter. Transfer to waxed paper heavily sprinkled with sugar, turning to coat both sides. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Poke with a fork 4 times. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until slightly puffed. Cool on wire racks.

¼ cup butter
 ¾ cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg yolk
2-3 drops of Red or Green Food Coloring

Mix all filling ingredients until smooth; add a few drops of water if needed.

When wafers are cool, fill with filling and sandwich together.

Makes about 60
