- 2butter sticks(1cup) at room temperature
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2tsp.vanilla extract
- Sift four, cornstarch, sugar together and keep it aside. Cream butter, vanilla until light and fluffy, then add the sifted dry ingredients to butter in few batches; blend smooth with mixer until they are mixed well. Refrigerate dough 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 300F. Make 1'' balls, place then on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten lightly with fork. Chill the cookies for 5-10min., then bake for about 20-25min., or until slightly brown.
