  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  3. In a saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Cool to room temperature. Spread on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

These cookies are delicious! My family gobbled them up. I ran out of filling and therefore had extra cookies which were wonderful on their own. Thanks for the great recipe!

I made these exactly as the recipe is written and they turned out fantastic! Only thing was I found they didn't take as long in the oven as the recipe suggested. However the first batch I overco...

These are some nice little cookies. They are not too sweet. The cookie is crisp yet tender. I didn't get enough filling out of the recipe for the whole batch, though. I just brushed the rest wit...

These were very good cookies. The only thing I did differently was to seal the edges of the sandwiches before they were baked and baked them that way. You had to bake them for 10-13 minutes at...
