    tablespoons Land O Lakes® Fat Free Half & Half

Directions

Combine 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup powdered sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and 1/2 teaspoon lemon flavoring; continue beating until combined. Add flour, cloves and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Divide dough in half; shape each into 8-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm. Heat oven to 350°F. Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle half of cookies with coarse grain sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Combine all filling ingredients in bowl, adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Spread about 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom of each cookie without sugar. Top with remaining cookies, sugar-side up.
