In the Vintage Kitchen: Austrian Cream Cookies

Beat 2 eggs until light.
Blend in 1 c. sugar
and 1 c. cream.

Mix in 3 3/4 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
and 1 t. salt.

Chill for an hour.

Roll out to 3/8 inch thick on floured board, then cut into 2" squares. Use the back of a knife blade to press a tic-tac-toe design onto the top of each cookie.

Grease the baking sheet and bake at 375 for 10-13 minutes.

Frost with a dab of buttercream and garnish with strawberry slices, or a tiny lemon twist and a mint leaf, or a single perfect raspberry . . . .

This is very interesting - no shortening, no butter - the cream instead! (I assume it's heavy cream.) And it sounds so simple!
I look forward to trying these. Thank you for posting it, because I looked high and low for it but came up with nothing even remotely like this.

I was thinking of those cookies and how I should come on here to post with the others. "Yes! Please have Bella share her recipe!" Wish so very happily granted! Thank you so much! I only hope my cookies look as lovely as Miss Bella's!

In Christ,

Well, I just made them tonight - how delightful! And I iced them (way too pink!) and put strawberries and blueberries on them. Even Dolly the cat was tempted! These cookies are unlike any others.
