Meltaway Cookies

These cookies fit its title perfectly. When you put one in your mouth it's almost like magic. They melt in your mouth! They taste similar to shortbread cookies because their base is butter. And the best part about them is that they are made up of only 6 ingredients. In 1 word I would describe these cookies as DELICIOUS!

1 cup butter
3/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour
1 recipe cream cheese frosting,
see below

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl beat the butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Then mix in the cornstarch and powdered sugar until smooth. Next, gradually beat in the flour. On 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper place teaspoon sized balls of dough. Take the bottom of a glass and press down on the cookies to flatten them out, using powdered sugar so it doesn't stick. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.

3 oz. Cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat the cream cheese till it is smooth and a liitle bit fluffy. Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla. Add food coloring if desired.
Spread on cooled cookies and serve. Frost only the ones you're going to eat right away.
