Melting Moments Cookies

Category: Cookies, Kids, Holiday

 Ingredients List

  • 1¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Topping:
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar, sifted


In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar for about 2 - 3 minutes until it is light and fluffy. Mix in the pure vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture that you prepared earlier, and mix until everything is well incorporated. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least one hour or until it is quite firm.
Preheat oven to 1800º C. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats, or use parchment paper.
Take out the refrigerated dough and either slice the dough or roll it into 1 inch balls and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets spacing -1 inch apart. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. You will know when they are ready. The edges of the cookies will just start to brown. Remove from oven and let them sit in the pan for a couple of minutes and then put on a rack to cool.
To finish the cookies, place some parchment or news paper under the wire rack. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with powdered sugar. If you prefer, you can just roll the slightly cooled cookies in the powdered sugar.
Place in an airtight container between sheets of wax paper. They will keep well for about 2 weeks. Makes about 40 cookies.
