Directions for Heaven Melt Wafers

  • Mix flour, whipping cream, and softened butter until fully combined. (Do not put sugar in the dough.)
  • Take wax paper or parchment paper and put the cookie dough on it. Roll it into a long tube, and it needs to be somewhat skinny. Make your fingers into an “ok” sign by making your first finger and thumb touch. See that circle? I would say that’s still a tad too big. The thing is, these cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, but they are very fragile, so they can’t hold up if you make them very big. They HAVE to be quite small.
  • When you have the dough in your tube, roll it until it seems as perfect of a tube as possible. You’re basically making these into your own slice and bake cookies.
  • When you have your dough in the tubes (the recipe will make about 3 tubes), place them carefully in the fridge, as you want them to maintain their tube shape.
  • Chill the dough for at least two hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 F prior to removing your dough from the refrigerator.
  • Take your first cookie dough tube and unroll the wax paper.
  • Use a sharp non-serrated knife to first cut off the end and discard.
  • Use your knife to slice your dough into your small round cookies about a quarter of an inch thick.
  • Slice until you get through the roll. You can use your fingers to shape the cookies a bit if they seem a little smashed on one side or something.
  • Put some granulated sugar in a bowl (it can be colored sugar). Take each little cookie slice and press both sides into the sugar. You want the entire outside of the cookie covered in it. 
  • I like to cover my cookie sheets with foil, shiny side down. Place each cookie on the foil. Take a fork and prick the cookie 4 times, pushing all the way through the cookie.
  • Bake the cookies for 7-10 minutes, just until they’re set. You do not want them to brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely, then use the cream to stick 2 of them carefully together like a little sandwich. You do have to be gentle or the cookies will break.
