  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cornstarch, and confectioners' sugar. Cut in the margarine; mix until a dough forms. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them on an unprepared cookie sheet. Flatten each ball slightly, using the back of a fork to make a criss cross pattern.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, edges will be slightly browned.

tried this recipe exactly, horrible!!!!!cut the margarine amount in half, this is the same recipe as "melting moments II".

The recipe is awful! I had to add another cup of flour and half cup of sugar before the cookies even started to keep their shape. I would NEVER use this recipe ever again!

I should have read the review before I tried this out. I also followed everything exactly as the recipe said, and ended up with a mess!

I made thee cookies and they turned out great! Thank you for the egg free recipe.
