Preheat oven to 325 °F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, sift together cornstarch and confectioners sugar. Whisk in the flour until well combined.
Using a two forks or rubber spatula, mix in the butter until a soft dough is formed.
Using a 1 Tbsp scoop, measure out dough into balls. Roll between hands to create smooth, round balls. Place on a baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
Lightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Using the tines of a fork, gently press the cookies down further.

These cookies freeze incredibly well. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight bag in the freeze for up to 3-months
