Melting Moments Cookies
These melting moment 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.

You’ll ONLY need 7 ingredients to make these butter cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with exact quantities.
