Today's Cookie

Melting Moments:

These little things are delicious!  It's a super simple recipe too.

-1 cup butter
-1 cup flour
-1/3 cup powdered sugar
-3/4 cup corn starch

Soften butter and stir in dry ingredients, mix well.  Roll into large ball and chill in refrigerator for 2-6 hours.

Roll into little (about quarter-sized) balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Frosting:  My directions simply said to mix melted butter, milk, and powdered sugar, so I just did whatever I wanted and it turned out just fine.  (I did 1 cup powdered sugar, roughly 1 tablespoon melted butter, and added milk slowly until the frosting was relatively thick.)

These cookies are delicious, and they really do melt in your mouth.  Delicious!  I think they would also be good with a bit of lemon in the frosting.


  1. Clearly I'm going to have to make some of those.

  2. Oooh, lemon frosting sounds delicious! It's not too late!

  3. I think I have a sick affinity for adding vanilla to frosting. Generally without thinking or measuring. If nothing else, it used to be an ingredient in Rice Krispie Treats. I just had two delicious RKT's and they are fresh on my mind. At Christmas, we used to make Cheerio Trees, which basically substitute a different cereal for a very different flavor. Add green coloring and red hots for ornaments, and shape as trees.

  4. nom nom nom...

    So we are all invited over to eat these cookies, right??

  5. Those look tasty. Taking on the task of family cookie-baker is no small feat!
