      MMMMM I was glad that I found the recipe online, it isn't on my cornstarch box anymore.
      Make sure you sift the dry ingredients as stated or you might get little crunchies lumps in the otherwise melt in your mouth cookies.

      Great!!!! Melt in your mouth cookies that are fantastic!!!! When mixing the butter, I used my hands rather than a wooden spoon and I think that made it alot easier! I decorated mine with Christmas sprinkles, baked them for exatly 15 minutes and ended with a great cookie! Thanks for the recipe mmlwjr!
