Project Dessert

Started going Through a 200 page dessert book 1-at-a-time daily until i got to #80 and the recipes were getting horrible so #100-#200 will be desserts i find that look interesting to make...enjoy!


Yield: about 1 1/2 dozen

Time: Prep – 7 minutes, Cook – 18-20 minutes


1 cup margarine

3/4 cup cornstarch

1/3 cup confection sugar

1 cup flour

3 Tbsp confection sugar

crystal sugars (any 2 colors)

  • Beat margarine until fluffy, and then add cornstarch and 1/3 cup confection sugar.
  • Add flour, mixing well until it forms a dough.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.
  • Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet.
  • Combine 3 tablespoons confection sugar with colored crystals and roll cookies in mixture.
  • Bake at 350 until golden brown.

Tips: After refrigerating dough for an hour it got a little tough. I used only 1 color of crystals as their not that cheap and I didnt think its worth to buy 2. The recipe does not say the amount of crystals to put in the rolling mixture so I had to just our an estimate. The crystals did not stick to the cookies when they were rolled in so I sprinkled some on top. I baked the cookies for 20 minutes and they only got light brown. These cookies tasted like a disgusting mixture of margarine and cornstarch but that’s just my opinion as some people told me they tasted decent.
