Melt with Meltaways


photo 2This recipe is a tradition in my family and it has been for as long as I can remember. The recipe makes 5 dozen cookies; I promise you’ll enjoy every single one!

Dough Ingredients:

½ lb of butter (soft)

¾ cup of cornstarch

1/3 cup of powdered sugar

1 cup of flour

Directions to make the dough:

Beat the butter, cornstarch, and powdered sugar well. Slowly add the flour and continue beating until everything is mixed thoroughly. Roll the dough into small balls (when I say small, I mean small!)  and place on a cookie sheet. Bake them at 350° for 12 minutes! As you make more you can adjust the baking time based on your own oven! Once the cookies are done, let them cool completely.

Icing Ingredients:

3 ounces of cream cheese

1 tsp of vanilla or almond flavoring

1 cup of powdered sugar

Directions to make the icing:

Beat the  cream cheese, flavoring, and powdered sugar until completely mixed.

Additional Notes:

You can add food coloring to the frosting only, if you want to make the cookies more festive. Also colored sugar crystals can be sprinkled on top of the cookies for another festive touch!photo 1
