Quick, easy and pretty...buttery and melt-in-your-mouth. Perfect texture for working with your cookie press!

Makes about 40

1 pound butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter, icing sugar, vanilla and salt. Gradually add cornstarch and flour. Whip with an electric mixer until fluffy. Place into a cookie press and press out cookies on cool baking sheet. Decorate with candied cherries or dragees if desired. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Note: Dress these up by pressing a half a candied cherry in the middle, or decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles.

These cookies are great! I made them instead of my usual spritz. You have to remember these are shortbreads not spritz and they have a different texture. As they do almost crumble in your mouth. I did take the advice and whip the heck out of it and added everything one at a time beating well after each. Great recipe! Might try a lemon variety next time! 5 stars

These cookies are wonderful. I have made 2 batches within a week because everyone loves them. I have added some coarse sugar sprinkles to some of them, but both ways are great! 5 stars
