Pastel Cream Wafers

Phenomenal cookies! They take a little time to make, but it's well worth it!
Makes 5 dozen
1 cup butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 cups all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food coloring (optional)
1. Mix flour, salt, and 1 cup of butter or margarine thoroughly. Stir in whipping cream and mix well. Chill 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
3. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured board. Cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Transfer to waxed paper heavily sprinkled with sugar, turning to coat both sides. Place on un-greased baking sheet. Prick in 4 places with fork. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until slightly puffed. Put two cooled cookies together with filling.
4. To Make Filling: Blend 1/4 cup soft butter, 3/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla. If desired, tint with food coloring.
