Paris cookies favorite for tea


Monday, December 12, 2016

Mary Ahern shares her favorite cookie at the tea. They are called Paris Waflar. Even Swedes think Paris is pretty special, she said.

Paris Waflar

For cookie

½ cup butter

1 cup flour

3 Tbsp. cream

For filling

¼ cup softened butter

½ cup powdered sugar

1 egg yolk (organic is good, since it will not be cooked)

1 tsp. vanilla

Combine first three ingredients as if for pastry crust. Shape into a ball and chill for several hours. Roll out as thinly as possible, cut with smallish round or oval cookie cutter (1¼  inch works well), dip the top in granulated sugar, and bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. They can be placed close together on the baking sheet, since they shrink slightly rather than spread.

Remove and cool.

Beat all the filling ingredients together. Spread between the bottoms of two of the pastry rounds. They break easily so treat them with gently.

If you don’t eat them right away, keep them in the freezer until serving.
