Pastry Cream Wafer Sandwiches

Posted on

I can’t believe how mini and cute these little sandwich cookies turned out. Not only do they look cute but they taste great! They are super simple and when I say that, I mean that. The recipe is actually quite similar to the breakfast pastry tart I made for my mom on Mother’s Day. The only difference is instead of using cold water, you use creamer. That means these cookies have a total of four simple ingredients. Yes, four! You most likely have all the ingredients on hand. So that means, get baking ladies and gents. PS if you don’t have a circular cookie cutter at home, a champagne glass will work just fine!
