Suzan's Orange Melt - Away Cookies

Image from Admiring Christ

These cookies literally melt in your mouth as you eat them.  I had them at a luncheon with some friends and they were fantastic.  I would like to try the recipe using lemon and see how it turns out!

Orange Melt-Away Cookies

1 cup real butter
3/4 cup cornstarch

Blend the two together and then add:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour or a little more as needed
1 teaspoon orange extract
orange zest from half an orange

Roll into balls and then smash them down a little bit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon orange extract or go half orange extract and half vanilla
orange zest from the other half of the orange

(She also uses a bit of softened butter and more powdered sugar)
