Favorite Holiday Recipe - Swedish Cream Wafers

I was given this recipe by distant cousins that I met while conducting genealogy of my father's family. The story I was told was that my Grammie's mother (who was Swedish) used to make cookies like this and the recipe had been passed to her son's wife who continued to make them and pass the recipe to her descendants. These cookies re so good. They are light but seem very decadent because of the yummy filling.
SWEDISH CREAM WAFERS
1 c. soft butter
1/3 c. whipping cream
2 c. sifted flour

Mix butter, cream and flour. Chill. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick on floured board. Cut with a 1 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Roll only 1/3 of the dough at a time. Keep rest in refrigerator. Coat both sides of cut dough with granulated sugar. Put on a cookie sheet and prick with a fork 4 times. Bake 7 to 9 minutes. Cool. Put two cookies together with frosting.

FROSTING:

1/4 c. soft butter
3/4 c. sifted confectioners' sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
