Shortbread

You don't mess with a good thing. This recipe is from the CANADA Corn Starch box. And as they say, it's deliciously simple!

1/2 cup CANADA Corn Starch
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup butter, softened

- Sift together corn starch, sugar and flour. With wooden spoon, blend in butter until a soft, smooth dough forms.
- Shape into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls. If dough is too soft to handle, cover and chill for 30 to 60 minutes. Place 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten with lightly floured fork.
- Alternatively, roll dough to 1/4 inch (6 mm); cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
- Decorate with candied cherries, coloured sprinkles or nuts, if desired.
- Bake at 300°F (150ÂșC) for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
