    Serves: 30 

    • 250g butter

    • 1/3 cup (80ml) light cream
    • 1/3 cup (65g) white sugar for decoration

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Cut 1 cup of the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cream and form the dough into a ball.
    3. Roll dough out 1cm thick and cut with a small round cutter. Roll cut circles in white sugar and place on ungreased baking sheets. Prick biscuits a few times with a fork.
    4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let biscuits cool before icing.
    5. To assemble: ice bottoms of half of the biscuits and place the remaining biscuits on top to make sandwich biscuits.
    6. To make buttercream icing: Beat 1/2 cup of the butter until fluffy. Gradually add the icing sugar. Beat in the evaporated milk and the vanilla. Adjust milk and icing sugar amounts to get buttercream to a good spreading consistency.

    These are great cookies that I've been making for years. I think the recipe should say 'roll to 1/8th of an inch in thickness' as opposed to 1/2 (which would give you really thick cookies). Sometimes the dough is too dry to roll easily- feel free to add as much cream as necessary to get a dough of good rolling consistency- otherwise, the cookies will have a tough texture. Also, MAKE SURE to prick the cookies! One time I didn't, and they blew up like balloons.  -  09 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were so good. I understand what the other reviewer was saying, but these are tea cookies so they should not be too sweet. We really loved them!  -  23 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    overall the cookies were okay. The frosting was really good but the cookie just had a really weird texture. It didn't have much flavor either so i added some almond extract. Good, but bland.  -  26 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
