Let me introduce you to Melting Moments cookies. And yes, they literally melt in your mouth.
They are delicious and easy to make.
[yield ~3 dozen of cookies]
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioner sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch (corn flour)
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
♥ Combine the dry ingredients and sift them.Cream the butter until light and fluffy (around 2 mins). Add the flour mixture and vanilla extract, beat thoroughly. Cover the batter with clip wrap and refrigerate for 1 or 2 hour (or until it's firm)
♥ Preheat the oven to 150C and line the baking sheet with parchment paper
♥ Shape the dough to 1 inch ball and place about 1 1/2 inches a part with one another. Lightly press the dough with a fork that has been dusted with flour (so it's not sticky)
♥ Bake about 18 minutes or until the edges are brown
♥ Remove from the oven and place the baking sheets onto the wire rack to cool for about 3-5 minutes
♥ Transfer the cookies onto the wire rack that has been place a parchment paper underneath and sprinkle the top of the cookies with icing sugar using a sieve
As you can see that the recipe involves only a few ingredients, so I suggest that you invest in a good quality butter. Because it will make a difference!
