This is an adaptation from an old Canadian Living Recipe. It is simple, a small batch, and easy to manage on a busy day. The original recipe called for Rice Flour and well as Flour, but I substituted Cornstarch just fine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In a large bowl, whip butter, sugar and salt untill fluffy.
  4. Add vanilla and almond extracts.
  5. Stir in flour and cornstarch a bit at a time to incorporate.
  6. Form into two thick ropes, rolling on wax paper.
  7. Refrigerate 30 minutes; they will be firm and easy to slice into coins.
  8. Bake slices until they just begin to turn golden on the bottom.
  9. I added chocolate chips to half, and they were nice too.

Nice 'n easy and oh so light and melt in your mouth. I separated the dough adding different treats like glace cherries n chocolate chips.
It definitely delivered, thank you womanofmystery!
