This cookie recipe is melt in your mouth good. They are pretty rich so one will do you plenty. I have thought about making them a little smaller, but they look so pretty larger, but I think a bite size cookie would be nice too for your sweetheart for Valentines Day.
Maple Creme Sandwich Cookies – 15 cookies – give or take 1 or 2
Cookies- 3/4 C brown sugar, 1 C butter (softened, but not melted), 1 egg yolk and 2 C flour
Creme – 2 TB butter(not margarine), 1 1/4 C powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 4-5 tsp. of milk
Beat brown sugar and 1 C butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk. On low speed, beat in flour until blended. You may need to cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 min or so for easier handling.
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Shape dough into 1″ balls. With a fork dipped in flour, flatten each ball to 1 1/2″ round in a criss cross pattern. Bake 10-14 min until light brown. Cool 1 min. Remove to a cooling rack and COOL COMPLETELY!
Creme- In a saucepan, heat 2 TB butter over med heat, stirring constantly until light brown. Remove from heat and stir in remaining frosting ingredients, adding only enough milk to make the creme smooth. Spread 1 TB frosting between layers of cookies and sandwich together.
