Lemon Vanilla Meltaway Cookies

1 c flour 1/2 c. corn starch 3/4 c. powdered sugar 3/4 c. butter 2 tsp. lemon juice 1 tsp. vanilla extract
These crispy wafers stay nice and round since they start out as balls. Great for a little snack with the homework, and delicate enough to serve to the Ladies Who Lunch with a cup of tea. In a medium bowl, combine flour, corn starch, powdered sugar. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture, then lemon juice and vanilla. You should be able to gather the dough into a ball. If the dough is too sticky, add a little extra flour. Refrigerate dough 15 minutes, or until it is easy to handle. Shape dough into balls. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets and flatten slightly with floured fingers. Chill unbaked cookies 5-10 minutes. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. If you're thinking ahead... Make this dough ahead and freeze it - before you use it, let it stand in the refrigerator 24-48 hours.
