Bright orange, sugary cookies that melt in your mouth – Halloween Meltaway Cookies are fun to make and fun to eat! You’ll never guess what ingredient makes these cookies so melt-able!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups cornstarch
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup coarse sugar, I used half cup each of black and white. You can use any colour you prefer.
- Orange food colouring, I prefer to use the gel, but you can use the drops. Just add as much as it takes to get to the orange colour you prefer.
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
Add the flour and cornstarch to a mixing bowl and whisk to blend. Set aside.
Cream together the butter and the confectioner’s sugar until fluffy. Add salt and food colouring and mix together.
Add the flour and cornstarch mixture to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix ingredients together until a solid dough has formed. The dough will not be wet or sticky.
Use about 1 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough; roll the dough into balls and roll the balls into the sugar. Set on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer the cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
