    Ingredients
    Makes: 30 cookies

    • 225g butter, softened
    • 80ml whipping cream
    • 225g plain flour, sifted
    • caster sugar for decoration
    • For the filling

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:27min 

    1. For the cookies: Combine the butter, cream and sifted flour. Mix well and chill for at least 1 hour.
    2. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    3. On a floured board, roll out 1/3 of the dough to 1/2 cm thick. Cut with a round biscuit cutter. Transfer rounds to greaseproof paper heavily covered with caster sugar. Turn rounds so that both sides are coated with sugar. Place rounds on ungreased baking trays and prick each round with a fork about 4 times. Repeat with remaining dough.
    4. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. Let biscuits cool then sandwich together with the filling (see below for prep method).
    5. To make filling: Blend 50g of butter, 80g icing sugar, an egg yolk and vanilla extract together. Tint with food colouring, if desired. You may double the filling for a nicer looking cookie.
