Holiday Shortbread Cookies


These cookies are very tender!

-- Serves
SKILL LEVEL 6 dozen cookies
1-1/3 cups Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
2 cups flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar
2 cups butter
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice, plus additional 1 to 2 tablespoons as needed
Red food coloring, optional

Preheat oven to 350°F.

For COOKIES: Combine corn starch, flour and 2/3 cup powdered sugar in medium bowl. Set aside.

Beat 2 cups butter in a large bowl with a mixer at medium speed until softened and smooth. Add the corn starch mixture, vanilla and 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon peel; beat well. (If necessary, refrigerate dough 1 hour or until easy to handle.)

Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place them 1-1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar to prevent sticking. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.

For ICING: Beat together in a medium bowl 1/3 cup butter and 1 teaspoon lemon peel until butter is softened. Add 4 cups powdered sugar and lemon juice; beat until well combined, adding additional tablespoons lemon juice or milk, if needed, to reach spreadable consistency. Add red food coloring, if desired. Decorate cookies with icing. Store in a tightly covered container.
