    2       c            All-purpose flour
      3/4   c            Butter or margarine,
                         -softened
      1/2   c            Heavy cream
                         Granulated sugar
                         -----FUDGE FILLING-----
      1/4   c            Butter or margarine
    2       oz           Unsweetened chocolate
    1       c            Powdered sugar
    1       t            Vanilla  or dark rum
    2       tb           Hot coffee or water
 
   Preheat oven to 375'F. Line cookie sheets with
   parchment paper or leave ungreased. Place flour in
   large bowl. Using electric mixer, blend 3/4 butter
   into flour until it forms pea-size pieces. Drizzle
   cream over the butter mixture; toss by hand just until
   mixed (mixture will look curdled).
   
   Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; press
   together to form ball. (If dough is too soft to
   handle, cover and refrigerate until firm.) Roll out
   dough, 1/3 at a time, to 1/8 thickness on lightly
   floured surface. Cut out with 1 1/4 round cutter. Dip
   top   of each dough circle in granulated sugar. Place
   sugared side up, 2 apart, on prepared cookie sheets.
   Pierce each cookie with fork.
   
   Bake 9-11 minutes or just until edges are very lightly
   browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Prepare Fudge
   Filling. Spread filling on bottoms of half the
   cookies. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides
   down, forming sandwiches.
   
   Makes about 10 dozen sandwich cookies.
   
   FUDGE FILLING: Melt 1/4 cup butter and chocolate in
   small bowl over hot water. Stir until smooth. Blend in
   powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in coffee until
   filling is spreadable, but not too soft.
