At Nan's Nummies in the shopping area called Valley Junction in West Des Moines, Iowa, bakers beat together four basic ingredients to make these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.


1 1/2 cups butter (not margarine)
3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
3/4 cup cornstarch
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


In a mixing bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds or until softened. Add powdered sugar and cornstarch; beat well. Add flour, beat until well combined.

Using about 1 tablespoon for each, shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and flatten slightly.

Bake at 350º for 12 minutes or until bottoms are starting to brown. Remove, cool on wire racks.
