Grandma Oram's "Meltaway" Cookies

Do not make these cookies. They will MELT the moment they touch your tongue...

1.) Mix together until well-blended:
  • 8 oz. melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sifted corn starch
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup flour
2.) Roll dough into small, 1-inch balls (this will be a sticky situation). Bake at 170° C for 10-12 minutes. Whatever you do, don't allow the cookies to brown; the idea is to leave them nice and melty.

3.) Blend well to make icing:
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Allow cookies to cool, then top each with icing. I like to refrigerate the cookies when they're all done, for optimal melt-in-your-mouth results.

Makes about 4 or 5 dozen bite-sized morsels of delight!
