M&M Shortbread Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1 cup M&M's, any color
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix butter, sugar and vanilla well using an electric mixer. Gradually blend in flour and corn starch.
Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Gently flatten each cookie using fingers or the flat bottomed drinking glass (dip in sugar to prevent sticking). Place M&M's on top of cookies.*
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until bottoms begin to brown. Cool for 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack. Cool completely.
*You can blend the M&M's into the batter instead of placing them on top.
