Today I had the pleasure of going to a fun blogger cookie exchange hosted by Jen of Tatertots & Jello! The big question was, what to make? There is something to be said about a simple basic cookie and the Perfect Meltaway was what I ended up bringing. These little cookies are so versatile and perfect for baby, or wedding showers it’s so simple and delicate.
The cookie itself is 4 basic inredients (makes about 3 dozen):
1 C. Butter
3/4 C. Cornstarch
3/4 C. Powdered Sugar
1 C. Flour
Whip butter until nice and fluffy then slowly add in the cornstarch, powdered sugar and flour.
Then scoop into a small cookie ball and place on your baking sheet.
After you have rolled your tray of dough balls, take a drinking glass with the bottom dipped in Powdered sugar to slightly flatten the dough on the tray.
Then Bake at 350* for 9-11 minutes. They go from done to overdone really quickly so watch them closely!
I made a simple Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
Tint as you wish! I did a simple layer of white, then reserved some for red and green for some Holly, & Ivy accents!
