Snowy Meltaways

This recipe was in my recipe box labeled "Corn Starch Cookies". Not very appetizing, huh? I've renamed them in honor of the TWO FEET of snow that dumped on the east coast this weekend. Stay warm y'all.
Snowy Meltaways

1 Cup Butter (two sticks) don't use margerine
3/4 Cup unsifted Corn Starch
1/3 Cup unsifted Powdered Sugar
1 Cup unsifted unbleached Flour

Using beaters, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add corn starch and powdered sugar. Stir in flour. Chill 4 hours. Roll into 24 balls and press thumb very lightly in top to make small indentation. Bake 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. Might be less depending on your oven. Make sure they are not browned.


3 oz Cream Cheese softened
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Food coloring as desired (I split mine in half after mixing, then 1 drop of green in half and 1 drop red in the other)

Cream and together then frost cooled cookies. Just spread a small dollop on each then refrigerate to set.
