Instructions
Wafer Dough
  1. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, mix together butter and flour until mealy (little pea size butter pieces gathered in the flour.)
  2. Add Vanilla to the Cream and stream into flour on low setting until the dough comes together.
  3. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in fridge to chill for an hour until firm.
Sugar Crust
  1. Lay out sugar onto a plate or a bowl, add colored sugar or use plain granulated sugar per your baking needs.
  2. Once the dough has chilled, take half of the dough onto a floured surface and roll to 1/8 of an inch thickness. (These are going to be sandwich cookies so the two halves do not need to be too thick as they will puff up when baked.)
  3. Take small cookie cutter and cut little shapes out of your rolled out dough, just remember if you do different shapes that you need cookies in multiples of two.
  4. Once cut out, take a fork and prick the tops of the wafers with the tines of the fork and press the top of the dough into sugar. (If the dough is too cold to pick up sugar, you can use a cream wash and dab onto the dough with a pastry brush and then sprinkle with sugar.)
  5. Lay out on sheet trays and bake @ 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until bottoms are golden.
Creamy Filling and Finishing
  1. Whip together in a mixer with a whisk attachment the Butter, Powdered Sugar and Vanilla until light and fluffy.
  2. Take paired Sandwich halves and place a dollop of creamy filling on one side. Press matching side of wafer together. Continue with the rest of the cookies and you are all ready to enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I have substituted half and half for the heavy cream in the recipe and they worked well, I could tell a slight difference in flakiness, but if you are in a bind and need to make them quickly and don't have any heavy cream them sub on. . .
