Stamped Shortbread Cookies

These stamped shortbread cookies are favorites in our family. My oldest granddaughter calls them "the melt in your mouth cookies" and they were the only thing that my niece wanted from me for her birthday last year!

Stamped Shortbread Cookies

1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup butter, softened (no substitutions)
2 cups flour
4 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and butter and beat until light and fluffy. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level off. Stir in the flour and cornstarch and mix well. Divide the dough into 18 equal pieces. Shape into balls. Roll the balls in 3 tablespoons of sugar. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. For each cookie flatten ball of dough firmly with a cookie stamp or the bottom of a drinking glass. Bake at 350 degrees F for 9 - 12 minutes or until bottoms are light golden brown. Cool for one minute and remove from cookie sheets. Makes 18 "melt in your mouth" cookies.
