Today's Shortbread Meltaway Cookies are quick, easy and they literally do, melt in your mouth.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter (room temperature)
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract (see note below)
Cream the butter, in a stand mixer, until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat until the dough is well mixed and comes away from the sides of the bowl.
Roll dough into one inch balls and roll them in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and lightly press down with a fork. Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes or until the outside edges of the cookie start to turn golden. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
