How to make it

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and cornstarch; beat until well blended. Dust hands lightly with additional cornstarch.
  • Roll dough into 1-in. balls; dip in nonpareils and place on ungreased baking sheets. Press lightly with a floured fork. Or, decorate with cherries by placing dough balls on baking sheets and pressing lightly with fork. Top each with a cherry half.
  • Bake at 300° for 20-22 minutes or until cookie is set but not browned. Yield: 16-18 dozen.

    JoyMarie, those look EXACTLY like my shortbread cookies, but not my whipped ones, just my regular ones! My whipped ones have little peaks on them like soft ice cream cones! LOL
