“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness.” ― Bob Hope
Melting moments were one of my favorite cookies at Christmas time growing up. They were simple to make and there was something about rolling balls in coconut, smashing them with a fork and putting a maraschino cherry or pecan in the center that satisfied my need for creativity. As an adult, I searched for years to find the familiar recipe that was always pasted on every cornstarch box with no success. And then there came Google, where everything is available at the click of a mouse, and voila, I have found the recipe at Argo and Kingsford Cornstarch. You can’t go wrong with these cookies.
Melting moments are versatile. Whether these cookies are rolled in coconut, sprinkle with crushed peppermints or dolloped with a cherry, imagination is your only limitation. I add cocoa powder to a batch for an additional variation. Not only are these cookies beautiful, but they truly do melt in your mouth. If you only have time to bake one cookie, these are the ones for you.
