Rich and buttery, these cookies are perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee!

3-1/2 dozen cookies
1 cup butter, softened (no substitutions)
1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2-1/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 cups flour
1/4 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch

Preheat oven to 300ºF.

Mix butter, apple butter, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice thoroughly using an electric mixer. Gradually blend in flour and corn starch.

Form into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Gently press down on each cookie to flatten using fingers or a flat bottomed drinking glass (dipped in sugar to prevent sticking).

Bake at 300ºF for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bottoms begin to brown. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

RECIPE NOTE: For European-style shortbread, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pat into a 1/3-inch thick rectangle measuring 11 x 8-inches. Cut into 2 x 1-inch strips. Place 1-inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Prick with a fork. Bake as above.
