Meredith’s Christmas Cookies

Meredith’s Christmas Cookies

I'm all about embracing traditions, and my husband's family has a ton of them! One of our traditions happens to be the Betty Crocker cream wafer cookies. It's our 20th year together, and without fail, these cookies come out for our Christmas Eve celebrations every year. Today, I'm excited to share this tradition with y’all. Whip up these cookies whenever you please throughout the year, customize the icing to your liking, but for us, they're a staple on our Christmas table.


1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1⁄3 cup whipping cream
1⁄2 cup sugar

1⁄4 cup butter
3⁄4 cup sifted icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie Directions:

  • Mix butter, flour and whipping cream thoroughly. Chill 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Roll dough 1/8" thick on a lightly floured board.
  • Cut into 1-1/2 inch rounds.
