Shortbread Cookies

This is Marie's recipe and Cory's favourite Christmas cookie.

1 lb butter
1 cup icing sugar
4 cups flour, less 8 tsp
8 tsp cornstarch

Cream butter until very light.  Add icing sugar and cream well.  Add remaining ingredients.  Knead for 5 - 10 minutes until dough does not stick to counter top.  Roll out and cut with cookie cutters or roll into small balls and squash with a floured fork.

Bake at 350F for 8 - 10 minutes for cut outs and 10 - 12 for the ball shapes.
