Melting Moments: Recipe of the Week


Fave Cookie for the Holidays – Melting Moments 

When I think of the holidays I have fond memories of baking cookies with my Mom. We would take over the kitchen counters every Christmas with pounds of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour --- baking a huge assortment of our favorite cookies. Being in a family with six children, everyone had a different “favorite” cookie. Mine were Melting Moments. These cookies are very delicate and “melt” in your mouth as the name implies. The secret to the melting, delicate flavor is in sifting your ingredients to achieve a silky texture. 



1 cup butter (MUST be sweet, unsalted)

½ cup powdered sugar
¾ cup corn starch
1 cup flour


Cream butter until it is soft and light. Gradually mix in the powdered sugar. Then, slowly sift in the corn starch and flour, mixing well. Roll dough into three 1-inch (diameter) rolls and wrap with waxed paper.

Chill overnight.

Slice and bake at 350° for 15 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. Cool.

Cookies may be frosted when cool, but be very careful because they are very fragile!
