Well, I woke up this morning, clicked on my computer and it told me it was -18 degrees outside. Glad I didn't have to get up and out of the house, that's all I can say about that. I have Cheesy Potato/Ham soup in the crock pot and its smelling good. Here is today's cookie recipe for you, please share with your friends and family!

Swedish Cream Wafers
1 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. half & half
2 c. flour
powdered sugar frosting
With a mixer beat butter for 30 seconds. Beat in the 1/2 & 1/2 and the flour. Cover and chill dough for 2 hours. On a lightly floured surface, roll 1/3 of the dough at a time to a 1/8" thickness. Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use. With a 1 1/2" round cookie cutter, cut into rounds. Dip each round into granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove and cool.
With a mixer beat 1/4 c. softened butter, gradually add one cup of powdered sugar, beat well. Slowly beat in 1 tbsp. milk and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Then beat in another cup of powdered sugar. Add milk if necessary for spreading consistency. Tint the color you desire. Spread about 1 tsp. of frosting on the unsugared side of your cookie, top with another to make a sandwich!
