Melting Moments

Made these last week, they hail from the Donna Hay cookbook Modern Classics 2. Beware if you make them, they may not last longer than one night in your house. They barely made it 12 hours in ours.

Melting Moments
175g (6 oz) butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
1/4 cup corn starch, sifted
60g butter (2 oz), softened
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.
Cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Add the flour and cornstarch and mix until it comes together.
Put the batter in a bag and with a fluted tip and pipe 1" circles onto parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

For the frosting, cream the butter, sugar, lemon juice and zest.
When the cookies are cool, sandwich them together with some frosting.
Makes about 16 sandwiches

Oh man! Those look/sound SO good! But I don't know how to "Put the batter in a bag and with a fluted tip pipe 1" circles onto parchment lined baking sheets." I really really wish I did.

I love your blog B. So classy and artistic.

I just made little balls with a spoon, because I did not have the right equipment either.
