1/2 lb butter (that's 2 sticks - no wonder they're so good)
3/4 c cornstarch
1/3 c powdered sugar
1 c flour
Cream butter and sugar. Add cornstarch and flour - beat until creamy. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet (each drop should be about the size of a tablespoon) - I use my small cookie scoop.
Note: these cookies don't expand much in the oven, so you can squeeze 15+ on a cookie sheet.
Dip the bottom of a glass into powdered sugar and press down on each cookie to flatten to 1/4" - 1/2".
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Cool before frosting.
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
3 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1 c powdered sugar
Mix until creamy. Add food coloring if desired. BE CAREFUL frosting the cookies! They are delicate and break easily, so handle with care :)
