Melting Moments Cookies- Exactly as the name implies. Delicious fluffy butter cookies that melt in your mouth.
Melting Moments Butter Cookies:
These cookies are also known as cornstarch cookies, because they have more cornstarch than flour in them. In this recipe, each pair of melting moments cookies are glued together with a drop of honey. This step is optional, but I love the way they look when bonded together- my boys call them snowman cookies.
These Melting Moments cookies bring back memories, because they were one my favorite sweets growing up . They are called “Fakhouri” in Arabic. My mom would make them around the holidays.
