Melt-In-Your-Mouth Sandwich Cremes & A Giveaway

Peek-A-Boo!
Here's a cookie for you.


Hello, beautiful friends!
Today I have an extra sweet treat for you,
melt-in-your-mouth sandwich cremes.
I shared a picture of these cookies
on my Valentine's tea post last week
and several of you lovely ladies asked for the recipe.
I want to personally thank Janet Karst
for following my blog and leaving a comment for the first time.
It's always a pleasure to hear from new readers
and please know that I enjoy and appreciate
every one of your comments.
Thank you, friends, 
for faithfully visiting and commenting.

Many of you also inquired about the Lamingtons recipe.
I will share the link to that recipe at the end of this post.
Now let's get to the cookie recipe!


- - Melt-In-Your-Mouth Sandwich Cremes - -

Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cups all-purpose flour
sugar for cookie coating

In a large mixing bowl,
combine the butter, cream, and flour.
Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours,
or until the dough is easy to handle.

Divide the dough into thirds
and on a floured surface, 
roll out the dough to 1/8-inch in thickness.
Cut with a floured cookie cutter.
Place the cutouts in a shallow dish
filled with sugar, turn to coat.

Place 2-inches apart on a baking sheet 
lined with parchment paper.
Back at 375 degrees F for 7-10 minutes.
Remove to wire racks
and cool completely.


Filling:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
food coloring

In a mixing bowl,
cream butter and sugar.
Add vanilla and tint with food coloring.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of filling
over half of the cookies;
top with remaining cookies.


Just look at this flaky goodness,
my friends.
Yes, these cookies 
will melt-in-your-mouth.


Life is short.
Surround yourself with kind and loving people. . .
and eat only good cookies.


Some of you also asked about the Lamingtons recipe
that I shared on my post last week.
You can find the recipe here.
The recipe called for dried coconut
which I could not find
so I used fresh and while it tasted good,
I think dried would have been much better.
Also, I did not make the chocolate syrup
that the recipe calls for,
but rather made one with confectioners' sugar.

Here is the recipe for the glaze icing:
1 pound of sifted confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons of butter, softened
1/2 cup of milk or water
(you may need a little bit more if the glaze is too thick)
food coloring 
(add it before you heat the glaze 
and add it sparingly if you want soft pastel colours)

Mix it all together in a small pan 
and heat it gently until warm and pourable.


And now for the giveaway. . .
a lovely friend and talented author,
Madison Meadows,
offered to give away one of her sweet books
Busy in Boots.


This book teaches respect of all professions and people 
and shows how important it is for everyone
to have that special person in place
to make the city a safe and fun place
to live, work, and play.
The book itself is charming
and the illustrations are simply adorable.
Busy in Boots is perfect for families 
with children of all ages.


I have a signed copy of the book
and I would be most happy to send it to someone special.
To enter the giveaway,
please leave a comment below 
sharing who you would share the book with
whether it's your children, grandchildren, 
nieces, nephews, friend's kids, etc.
I will announce the winner 
next Wednesday, February 27th.

You can also find a copy of this book

Enjoy the remainder of your week, sweet friends!
Love and hugs to you.

Those cookies look so beautiful and I bet they taste just as good. I can't wait to make them for my quilting group. I'm not much of a baker, but this looks simple enough...I hope! Thanks for sharing!

The book looks lovely, but I have no small children in my life so opt me out so that someone that does have little ones can enjoy it!

What a sweetie you are to have that giveaway.. congrats to the winner!
Yummy looking recipes too! Thanks for sharing.

I have a friend in Australia and she gave me a recipe for Lamingtons and they were delish!
They reminded me of the old "Snowballs" that Hostess makes, only the ones I made from her recipe were chocolate coated.

Warm wishes.
