Keller Williams Realty in Albany, OR is having a Grand Opening 1/19/12 from 5:00-7:30 pm.
Please join us in the celebration of the expansion of the Albany branch of Keller Williams Realty Mid-Willamette!
While you appreciate our beautiful new building at this event, we also invite you to enjoy a silent auction benefitting the Albany Boys and Girls Club. Drawings will be held for fabulous prizes such as a weekend at a luxury condo on the coast; you won't want to miss out!
Yummy hors d'oeuvres and sweets will be available for your enjoyment as well. As an added bonus & thank you for reading this blog, here's what I will be bringing to the event!
CREAM WAFERS - originally gotten from my Mom's 1970's era Betty Crocker cookbook, but also found on Allrecipes.com
1 c. soft butter
1/3 c. whipping (heavy) cream
2 c. flour
1/3 c. granulated sugar
Mix thoroughly butter, cream & flour. Cover & chill at least 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375. Roll about 1/3 of the dough at a time to an 1/8" thickness on a floured, cloth-covered board. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll.) Cut into 1 1/2" circles.
Transfer rounds with spatula to a piece of waxed paper that is heavily covered with the granulated sugar. Turn each round so that both sides are coated with sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick rounds with a fork about 4 times. Bake 7-9 minutes or just until set but not brown; cool.
CREAMY FILLING -
1/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
Cream all ingredients until smooth & fluffy. Tint with food coloring. (Add water for spreading consistency if necessary.) Spread filling on one wafer, and top with a second wafer. Makes 5 dozen.
I hope you enjoy the recipe, and I look forward to seeing you when Keller Williams Realty in Albany, OR has their Grand Opening on 1/19/12!
