The Yummiest Peppermint Meltaway Cookies

For the Cookies:

1 Cup butter, softened
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
1 Tsp peppermint extract
1 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
1/2 Cup Argo cornstarch
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter, powdered sugar and peppermint extract in a large sized bowl. Mix until creamy and then add in flour and cornstarch. Put in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Shape into small balls, about a teaspoon size. Put on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets and then put on cooling rack.Peppermint Meltaway Cookies Recipe featured by Utah lifestyle blog, By Jen Rose

Peppermint Frosting:

3 Cups powdered sugar
4 Tbsp butter, softened
2-4 Tbsp milk
1 Tsp peppermint extract
pink food coloring
I use a 1M Frosting Tip and think it is the perfect amount of frosting per cookie.
