Melt-Aways

These are a family favorite. They are very rich, so roll them into bite size little cookies (maybe two bites).


Melt-Away Cookies

Cookies:

½ lb butter, softened (no substitutions)
1 cup flour
¾ cup cornstarch
1/3 cup powdered sugar

Mix well until all flour is absorbed. Roll in small balls and bake at 350* for 12 minutes.

Icing:

3 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Mix and spread on warm cookies.

Makes two dozen.

These look sooo good! This is my kind of cookie. Well, not much isn't my kind of cookie except the store bought variety (yuck!). I'll have to give them a try. I really love that you have more family pics and stuff on here. Are you doing the photography or is Seth still doing it? It looks great!

PS Someday I am going to have to commission your hub to paint me a rooster! I get rooster envy when I'm at your house...

OK megan. I just made these cute little cookies and though they are quite "Melty" they are also quite crumbly. I can almost not even frost them because they crumble in my hand. Is there an egg or some other binder that could fix my problem, or is that the way of this cookie?

Lindsey,
No egg. Sorry about the crumbling. Does your altitude affect your baking?
