This post is a copy and paste from several years ago. I thought maybe since there are a lot of new IG followers, some might make their way over to grab this recipe. It's the big day, the first weekend of December, and that means my cookie production begins. It sounds a lot more arduous that it really is, and that's because I now only make this recipe, over and over and over again. Why mess with a good thing. And here is a few quilty photos since this is a quilting blog (or it pretends to be)
Change isn't Alway a Good Thing
1/2 C corn starch
1/2 C icing sugar (powdered)
1 C flour
3/4 C butter
Sift dry ingredients. Mix in softened butter with a pastry cutter. Continue mixing with a spoon and do the final mix with your hands.
Roll into 1" balls, flatten with a floured fork on ungreased pan. Bake 300 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes (edges slightly golden)
Makes 3 dozen cookies
Cool on a rack and enjoy! For a more festive display you can add a little piece of green or red candied cherry on top before baking or drizzle with chocolate after they cool.
Store in a sealed tin.
