This is an old family recipe. My Great aunt used to just drop them from a spoon onto a cookie sheet. I use my cookie gun and get about 120 cookies. They are an excellent-melt-in-your-mouth cookie. I decorate them with cherries and icing.
- Cream butter until light and fluffy, then add icing sugar and cornstarch. Mix and whip until light and creamy.
- Then add vanilla and flour (a bit at a time) and whip again until light and creamy.
- Drop from a spoon or use a cookie gun to make shapes on a pan.
- Bake in a 325°F oven for 20-25 minutes, depending on size of cookie (just until set and starting to turn pale golden).
