Cookie Club Recipe #5

Whew!!!! I have been whirling around like a Texas tornado this week. I got back in town from the Smokey Mountains and it took me a little bit to get my ducks in a row. I will post about that little trip soon. For now I have the 5th cookie recipe for my devoted cookie club fans.
Before I give you the recipe I must tell you....You have to use the filling or the cookies will not be good. Trust ME! :)

Caramel Cream Sandwich Cookies

Cookies:
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg yolk
2 cups AP flour

Frosting:
2 Tblsp. butter (do not use margarine)
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4-5 tsp milk

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and 1 cup of butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk; blend well. Add flour; mix well. If necessary, cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 15 minutes for easier handling.

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat until light golden brown, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat.

Stir in remaining ingredients adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth.

Spread 1 teaspoon of frosting between 2 cooled cookies. Repeat.

Makes about 30 sandwich cookies.
