DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the cornstarch, icing (powdered) sugar and flour.
  • Blend in butter until a soft smooth dough forms.
  • Shape into 1" balls and chill 30 -60 minutes.
  • Place 1 1/2" apart on a cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a floured fork. (omit if throwing sprinkles on, and/or don't like fork flattened shortbread - I don't and it still comes out just fine)
  • Bake 300' for 15-20 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool. Watch that they don't brown, you want to pull them out while they still look a smidge underdone - the idea is that they do not brown on the bottom.
