Melting Moments

Iam back after a loooong break!!I was tied up with work and other things.

Its always good to be back in blogosphere...Hope you guys are doing great!

I made these cookies long time before...They were so good.

Recipe courtesy:Joy of baking

Ingredients:

Allpurpose flour - 1 1/2 cup

Corn Starch - 1/2 cup

Butter - 1 cup softened at room temperature

Icing sugar - 1/4 cup to mix in and another 1/2 cup for topping

I made my own by grinding regular sugar in blender.

Vanilla extract - 1 tsp

Method:

In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch and salt. 
 
In the bowl , beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. 

Cover and refrigerate the batter for an hour or two, or until firm. 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

When batter is firm, form into 1 inch balls and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 10 - 14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies just start to brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 3-5 minutes.

 Transfer the cookies to a wire rack that is placed over a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Put the confectioners sugar in a fine strainer or sieve and sprinkle the tops of the cookies with the sugar.
