Delicious Melt Away Cookies

As promised here is the recipe for the melt aways that my mom made for our cookie exchange. She originally got this recipe from one of her friends. My mom made these a little bit larger than her friend makes them, but they were still just as good. My moms friends makes them pretty small that you can pop the whole cookie in your mouth! These cookies are frosted with a cream cheese icing with a little almond extract, you can make your own frosting or buy some cream cheese icing and just add almond extract. I can't express how much I love these cookies!! And they are so simple, just 4 ingredients....yeees they are a little heavy on the butter, so make these when you aren't dieting because you wont be able to just stop at one:)

Melt Aways

1/2 lb butter (softenend)
1/3 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. corn starch
1 c. flour

Mix all ingredients on low speed until the dough comes together. Use a small cookie scooper and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 min, don't let them brown, just cook until the cookies set and you see small cracks.

Frost with favorite cream cheese icing with almond extract,one of my favorite cream cheese icings can be found here.

Tip: These cookies are a little fragile, so it makes it a little easier to place them in the freeze for a minute before frosting.
