So, the name may not reach out and grab you, but these cookies are incredibly buttery, melt in your mouth, fantastic! These are a great cookie to mix and match if you are doing a holiday plate of baked goods.They are a “mini” cookie and so a batch can make around 100 cookies! Talk about efficient! Make it a family affair and let the kiddos help you “decorate” the cookies.
- 1 pound (4 sticks) butter
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Sift flour and set aside. Cream butter in a mixer. (about 4 minutes) Then add the remaining ingredients one by one until well combined. When mixture is combined, put on a floured surface and knead for a couple of minutes. Then roll out dough about 1/4″ thick. Use a round cookie cutter (about 1″) and cut into circles. Bake for 10 minutes.
This is what the cookies look like fresh out of the oven. If they are brown at all, you have burned them!
- 1 stick butter
- 4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
Cream butter in mixer. (about 4 minutes) Add 2 cups of the sugar, vanilla, and half of the milk. Mix well until powdered sugar is incorporated. Then add the remaining powdered sugar one cup at a time and adding milk until desired consistency is reached.

What an interesting recipe! I’ve never made cookies with cornstarch but I’m willing to give it a try. They look beautiful. Simple, frosted cookies are my favorite kind!
Shannon had these at her wedding and i loved them! They are a beautiful cookie and really easy to make!
I agree, sounds interesting. Does the frosting dry hard? It has butter in it so wasn’t sure. The look really cute!
I made the frosting a wee bit more runny than I would for a sugar cookie. So if you let them sit out there will be a shell of hardness but it is soft once you bite in.
Hi Emily! I bookmarked your blog..so excited to keep up with your baking adventures. I might have to use this post as inspiration for holiday baking. 🙂
Those sound really neat!
