You'll need just five everyday ingredients to stir up a batch of these bite-size cookies from Ruth Whittaker of Wayne, Pennsylvania. Although they don't cost much—a mere 4¢ they're rich and melt-in-your-mouth good.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup cornstarch
- In a small bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour and cornstarch; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
- Drop by 1/2 teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 11-13 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 7 dozen.
