Lemon Meltaways

These lemon-flavored cookies are so tender that they seem to melt in your mouth.

1 1/4 c flour
1/2 c cornstarch
1/3 c powdered sugar
3/4 c butter, softened
1 T lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 t grated lemon peel

3/4 c powdered sugar
1/4 c butter, softened
1 t lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 t grated lemon peel

For cookies: in large mixer bowl combine all ingredients. Beat 2-3 min. on low speed until well mixed. Shape dough into two 8 x 1 inch logs. Wrap in saran wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until firm. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut logs into 1/4 inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-12 minutes or until set. Cookies will not brown. Remove immediately. Cool Completely.

For frosting, in small mixer bowl combine all frosting ingredients. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Spread on cooled cookies.
