Yesterday I decided to make PUFF COOKIE SANDWICHES …… one of my favorite cookies …… as a part of my Christmas Baking Extravaganza.
PUFF COOKIE SANDWICHES are very light and fluffy cookies that my Slovak grandma used to bake always around Christmas time.
I used to love the way the cookies melted in my mouth.
I haven’t had the PUFF COOKIE SANDWICHES in a very long time so I figured it was time ….
You don’t have to wait till Christmas to make PUFF COOKIE SANDWICHES ….. you can make them for any occasion. Just chose seasonal cookies cutters.
- 1 cup Butter (room temperature & unsalted)
- 2 cups Flour
- 1/2 cup Whipping Cream
- 1/4 cup Butter
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1 1/2 cup Icing Sugar
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 375F.
STEP 2: In a bowl cut butter into the flour. You will get a crumbly mixture. Add the whipping cream, mix it gently. With your hands work it into a dough.
STEP 3: Cover a surface with sugar and roll out the dough to 1/4″. Use small cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Place the cookies onto the cookie sheet, sprinkle with more sugar and prick with a fork.
STEP 4: Bake for 8-10 minutes.
STEP 5: Meanwhile in a small bowl beat the butter, vanilla and egg yolk till creamy and fluffy. If the filling is not stiff enough add little more icing sugar.
STEP 6: After the cookies are done. Cool them for 2-3 minutes. Move them onto the cooling rack and let them cool completely.
STEP 7: Spread the filling between the cookies to make little cookie sandwiches.
STEP 8: You can also use little bit of raspberry jam for extra flavor.
