Original recipe yields 2 dozen



  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cornstarch and white sugar. Add the butter and cream well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the sugar mixture until a dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto an unprepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are golden brown at the edges. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These are a not-too-sweet cake like cookie and I really enjoyed them. I had to use 3 tablespoons of half and half because my dough was a little dry, but that could be a lot of different things other than how the recipe was written. Very good!! I imagine these would be fantastic with coffee and I'll be trying that out in the morning!

I made the first batch with the original 24qty recipe. My guys loved them so much that the next day I found all the ingredients needed to make them on top of the counter. So I went back into the web site and changed the amount for 96. But unfortunately they are coming out with a sour after taste. Can any one help me figure out why?



I really liked this cookie. It tastes just like a cookie my mom makes. It's not too sweet, but very dense, which makes it great with a cup of coffee. My kids liked using the cookie cutters with these cookies, although it did take longer with them helping!
