Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

I was expecting a caramel-rich gooiness somewhere, but was disappoointed. I found melting some caramels and spooning it over the cookies more satisfying.

These were fun to make and delicious! Unlike other sandwich cookies I have made, these held up well and were great to pack in lunches!

My 80 year old mother has made these cookies for as long as I can remember. Haven't met anyone who doesn't love them! They are requested often by her kids who come to visit from out of town (g...

This was one of my favorite cookies growing up. It actually is from a Pillsbury Bake off paperback cookbook that my mom had (that I now have) from back in the 50's. There were so many good rec...

Good flavor. I didn't make sandwich style cookies, it would have been too much cookie. I frosted them and they were very good.

I personally didn't like these very much so I sent my husband to take them to the after school program at school where everyone loved them. I 'll give them the recipe so they can make them.
