Meltaway Cookies

These cookies live up to their name. They melt away right in your mouth. In looks they could be a sugar cookie's twin, but in taste they are much lighter. The secret is the cornstarch and powdered sugar in the short ingredient list.

This was my first run at using a cookie stamp, so there was a learning curve. My stamping is not quite professional, but it doesn't affect the taste. These are yummy cookies.
