Hi folks. Apropos to my recent "Melt in your Mouth Cookie" recipe contribution, here is a similar one from the New Zealand woman's bible, the Edmonds Cookbook; first edition published in 1955 and reprinted yearly ever since. (the Edmonds people make baking powders, flours, box cakes and other related goods) There have been over 3½ million sold and that's the population of my country. Anyway, to make a long story short, the New Zealand version is one called: Melting Moments.

Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy. Sift flour, cornflour and baking powder together. Mix into creamed mixture, mixing well. Roll dough into small balls the size of large marbles and place on greased oven tray.

Flatten slightly with fork. Bake at 180 or 350 for twenty minutes. Cool and if desired, sandwich together with butter icing or jam. Makes 16 pairs or 32 singles.

Butter Icing: Beat all ingredients till smooth.
