Melt-in-your-mouth Cookies

posted on: Sunday, December 23, 2012

If you have any last minute holiday baking to do I have the BEST cookie recipe!
These cookies are buttery and just like their name says...they melt in your mouth.
The next time I make them I will make a smaller cookie and cover it entirely in the frosting.
The cookie itself isn't very sweet so the frosting completes it!
Happy Baking!


-Melt-in-your-mouth Cookies-
 
Ingredients
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
3/4 cup cornstarch
a few splashes of milk
 
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls.
Bake for 5 minutes.
Take out and make a thumb print in your cookie.
Place back into the oven for 6-7 more minutes.
 
Cool the cookies.
Once cool add as much or as little frosting as you choose.
You can either fill the thumprint with frosting or cover the whole cookie (which is what I suggest!).
