I see other cookies with this name on this site. But none of them will literally melt in your mouth like this one will. The recipe is deceptively simple ... maybe it is this simplicity that makes these cookies so wonderful.
Even if you have tried other cookies with this name, I urge you to try this recipe. See if you agree with me.

How to Make Melting Moments

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix all ingredients together with a fork, as for pastry. Once the butter softens sufficiently it will come together into a ball.
  • 2Wrap the ball of dough in plastic and refrigerate until firm, about 1/2 hour.
  • 3Roll the dough into small ball (slightly smaller than a walnut). Space evenly onto a cookie tray, I can get all four dozen onto one tray for the oven.
  • 4Bake at 350 deg for 10-15 min. If you refrigerate the balls on the cookie tray for another 10 min before you bake them, the cookies will be rounder and stand up more, otherwise they will slump considerably.
  • 5Let cookies cool completely and frost with cream cheese frosting.
