You can even make the dough several days ahead to save on prep time the day of your event.


  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup white sugar, or as needed


  • In a bowl, mash the butter and flour together until smooth and creamy. Beat in the cream, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, until thoroughly combined.
  • Scrape the dough onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, wrap tightly, and chill at least 1 hour to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough out 1/4 inch thick on a floured work surface, and cut into 2-inch circles with a cutter. Place sugar into a shallow bowl, and dip each cookie into the sugar on both sides. Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven until the edges turn light golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cooling for about 5 minutes on sheets before removing to cool completely on racks.

I gathered all the necessary ingredients and began the preparation process. The dough came together easily, and I was pleased to learn that it could be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. This would save me precious time on the day of my event.

After chilling the dough, I rolled it out and cut it into small, bite-sized pieces. As the cookies baked, the tantalizing aroma filled my kitchen, heightening my anticipation. Once they had cooled, I couldn’t resist trying one.

The Cream Cookies truly lived up to their name. They were incredibly delicate, practically melting in my mouth with each bite. The flaky texture was delightful, providing a light and airy experience. I could see why my guests would be begging for the recipe.

I made a mental note to share the recipe with anyone who asked, knowing that these Cream Cookies would be a hit at future gatherings. The ease of making the dough ahead of time also made them a convenient choice for busy event preparations.
