HAWAII-Melt in your mouth Shortbread Cookies

Today I am a happy woman.  While making the next recipe in the OUR COOKIE NATION series, I came to Hawaii's most requested recipe of shortbread.  I am a huge fan of shortbread cookies, and as far as shortbread recipes are concerned, this is the first "keeper" I have found.  Loved, loved, loved this cookie (my family said they wanted the cookie to be sweeter, but what do they know about shortbread? LOL).
And hello, 4 ingredients!!!!!!!!!
Grade B+
Melt-in-your-mouth Shortbread
1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/4c. cornstarch
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size mixing bowl whip butter until fluffy.  Stir in the powdered sugar, cornstarch and flour.  Beat on low  for 1 minute until combined, and then on high for 3 to 4 minutes.  The dough will become smoother and creamier as you mix it.
Drop by spoonfuls 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 12-15 min. watching that the edges don't become too brown.  Cool on wire racks and decorate if desired.
