Lemon Shortbread Stars (from "A Taste of Canada," by Rose Murray)

(These are really a lot of work, but very good!)

1 c butter

1/4 c cornstarch

1 c icing sugar

1 tbsp grated lemon zest

1 3/4 c a/p flour

4 tsp fresh lemon juice

Set oven to 275 deg F.  In large bowl, beat butter until fluffy.  Beat in cornstarch, then 1/3 c icing sugar and 1 tsp lemon zest.  Stir in flour.  Divide dough in half.  Roll out between 2 sheets of waxed paper.  Cut out stars with cookie cutter.  Lay cookies on parchment covered cookie sheets and freeze for 30 min’s.  Bake for 40-50 min’s, rotating and switching the pans around halfway.  Brush glaze on warm cookies.  Glaze: stir remaining icing sugar with remaining 2 tsp lemon zest & juice to make a glaze.  Cool completely and they can then be layered between waxed paper in an airtight container.  Store for 1 wk at room temp or 1 month in the freezer.  (Makes about 4 doz.)
