1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
¾ cup cornstarch
1 cup flour
Mash softened butter in bowl with a spoon. Add sugar, and fold together until mixed. Add cornstarch and then flour.Chill for at least an hour (I usually do overnight)
Make into 1” balls and bake @ 350 for 15 minutes. Watch closely so that bottoms only lightly brown. Allow to cool fully before frosting.
2 tbsp butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp Almond extract
Milk to spread
Combine ingredients, add desired food coloring, and frost the cookies.
I do not use a mixer for these cookies, the dough seems to get too thick and tough.
