Meltaway Cookies

meltaway_cookies

These are so flaky. It’s a good thing I’m talking about cookies here. Ha! They literally melt in your mouth. They are light but rich . . . and the cream cheese frosting is a perfect complement.

 

Cookies:

1 cup butter

¾ cup cornstarch

¾ cup powdered sugar

1 cup flour

 

Frosting:

8 oz. cream cheese

½ cup butter

dash salt

3 c powdered sugar

1 t vanilla

food coloring, optional

 

To make cookies, cream butter until fluffy. Add cornstarch and sugar. Mix well. Add flour and mix until dough forms. Using ¾-inch scoop, form balls from dough and place on cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of glass (dipped in powdered sugar to prevent sticking). Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Cool. Meanwhile make frosting by beating ingredients until creamy and smooth. Frost cooled cookies.
