Beverly's Meltaway cookies

I stole this from Tyler's friend's blog. These cookies seriously melt in your mouth hence the name and they are so cute and fun. I enjoyed making them for Easter with pastel colored frosting. Don't let the nasty tasting dough fool you.

1/2 lb butter
3/4 cup corn starch
1/3 cup powered sugar
1 cup flour

Beat butter, add corn starch, flour, and sugar. Beat until creamy. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet (don't make them too big). I shaped them into perfect little balls and made a divet on the top for frosting. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. Frost when cool. I used a spoon to drop frosting onto the top.

3 oz cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
food coloring

Cream cheese, add vanilla and sugar. Divide and color.
Yields 40 cookies
