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.

Would make this again.
Thought they were good cookies. I thought I tasted a flourey taste. I added a little more powered sugar and vanilla. Then added some cinnamon. I also didnt have quite a pound of butter, so I added cream cheese to make up for it. It wasn\\\'t much cream cheese, but enough it gave the cookies a slight tang. I think it was the corn starch that gave the flour taste. The cookies should have a slight golden to the edges. 4 stars
