As kids we would pull these apart like Oreos and lick off the frosting!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons heavy cream
Cream 1 cup butter or margarine. Gradually add brown sugar, creaming well. Add egg yolk and blend. Add flour, stirring until the mixture forms a dough. Chill slightly for easier handling.
Roll dough into small balls, about the size of a marble. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and flatten to 1/8 inch thickness with the palm of the hand. Press with fork in one direction to make a design.
Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 9 to 12 minutes until cookies just begin to brown very lightly. Remove from sheet while warm. Place flat sides of two cookies together with frosting, sandwich-style.
To Make Browned Butter Frosting: Brown 2 tablespoons butter slightly in saucepan. Remove from heat and blend in 1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar. Gradually add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 4 to 5 teaspoons cream until it becomes a spreading consistency.
