My New Favorite Cookie ~

Yummy Recipe | Inspiration

I had to share this fabulous cookie recipe that I made for the kiddos latest Birthday party. They were SO yummy...really addictive-ly yummy (and they are also great frozen)! 

I got the recipe from my friend Val over at Heartland Interiors. She made them with pink frosting - which was of course super fabulous.

Melting Moments
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
Cream butter, add sugar & cornstarch, mix well.
Add vanilla, mix well.
Add flour, mix well.
(Recipe says to refrigerate dough for 1 hour, but you don't need to)
Shape dough into little balls and bake @ 350° for about 10 - 12 minutes
(or until cookies barely turn golden).
Frost with your favorite butter cream frosting!

I was in a huge hurry and didn't have time to make butter cream frosting, so I will let you in on my "cheater" way of making frosting. Simply start with store bought frosting (yes, the completely artificial kind by the cake mixes) and start adding a little almond favoring until it makes you smile (if you want, this is a good time to add a little food coloring too). Then mix in as much powdered sugar as you need to to get the consistency back to were it was before you added the flavoring. Like I said "cheater" frosting...but it is super easy in a pinch and better than straight out of the "can"!

Made these yesterday (with Packer's green icing) & they were a HUGE hit! So easy & very few ingredients. They taste a lot like the "lofthouse" cookies from your groceries bakery. I had store bought "whipped" butter cream icing, so that it what I used. I will try your cheater way next time.
