3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/3 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup shortening
2 tablespoons hot water
Preheat oven to 325°.
Blend all cookie ingredients with an electric mixer. Knead it with your hands until it reaches the consistency of dough.
Form the dough into balls about 3/4 of an inch in diameter and press them flat, 1/2 inch apart, onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 6-8 minutes. Allow cookies to cool.
Combine all the filling ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer.
With your hands form the filling into little balls about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch in diameter.Place a filling ball in the center of the flat side of one of the cooled cookies and press down with another cookie, flat side down, until the filling spreads out to the edge.
Comments from the cook: These cookies are hugely popular with kids. The "white stuff" is almost exactly like the store-bought stuff too. The cookies themselves are not quite like the real thing, but they're easy...so close enough!
