****WELCOME FRIENDS****
I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

this is my hands down fave!

Christmas Sandwich Cremes
I always make 2 batches because I can eat one all by myself!


1 cup butter (no substitutes) softened
1/3 cup whipping cream
2 cups all purpose flour
sugar

Filling:
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes) softened
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons real vanilla
food coloring

In a mixing bowl, combine butter, cream, and flour;mix well.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle. Divide into thirds;let one portion stand at room temperature for 15 minutes (keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll out). On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8" thickness. Cut with 1-1/2" round cookie cutter. Place cut outs in a shallow dish filled with sugar; turn to coat. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Prick with a fork several times. Bake at 375f for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks.
For filling~in mixing bowl, cream butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Tint with food coloring (I use half red and half green)
Spread about 1 teaspoon filling on half of cookies, top with remaining cookies. Makes about 36-40 cookies.
