How to make melting moments

These cookies have the texture of shortbread cookies, and they simply melt in your mouth (hence the name). Other versions of these cookies include piped rosettes with a glaced cherry on top, as well as round balls covered with icing sugar.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Stir in the flour and cornstarch until combined.
  4. Set aside 1/4 of dough and colour with pink food colouring.
  5. Take 1 tsp of uncoloured dough and shape into a ball. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  6. Place the pink mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Pipe a flower/star onto the ball of uncoloured dough.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Cool on trays.
