Meltaway Cookies

Meltaways 1 - My Daughter and I

How was your Easter? Ours was great- we went to a wonderful sunrise church service and then had a great early dinner with some friends. In between those two events, I whipped up these delicious cookies. The recipe is very unusual and only calls for four ingredients. I definitely had my doubts as I was making them. I knew I had an apple pie and also two creamy yogurt pies, just in case these failed miserably. However, they turned out great and they were so light and buttery. Everybody loved them! Like the name states – they meltaway!

I think these cookies would be great to serve at a baby or bridal shower. They are a bit delicate, so don’t try to mail them to anyone! I kept the frosting white, but I thought that they would be beautiful with pastel blue frosting and those mini pearl cookie decorations. How ever you decide to make them, they will be delicious.
