Christmas Sandwich Cremes Recipe

Recipe Courtesy of Taste of Home

I made these for the first time last year. Everything they say about them is true ~ They melt in your mouth and are so good. They will make an impression on anyone who tries them. This is such a delicate dough to work with so roll our in small batches, keeping the rest of the dough chilled until ready to use. I hope you'll all give these a try. ~ Julia
