SnickerDoodle Melts

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup shortening (sorry, do not substitute butter. It doesn't work)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg

1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups cake flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp nutmeg

3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

Cream together the first five ingredients in the bowl of a mixer.

Combine in a separate bowl, the next five dry ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet, until mixed completely.  You will want a consistency that is slightly more moist than playdough, but not sticky to the touch.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Add 1/2 tsp nutmeg (if desired - and I usually DO desire...)

Roll the cookies in 2 tbsp sized balls in your hands, and then coat in the cinnamon sugar blend.  Place on a cookie sheet (I typically use a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat) and flatten using the bottom of a cup or glass measuring cup until they are 1/2 inch thick.  Keep flattened cookies approximately 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9 to 10 minutes, or until the tops are puffy and the edges have cracked.  Pull them out of the oven and leave on the baking sheet for five minutes.  Remove to a wire cooling rack. Cool Completely. Eat.

Then eat another.

Pour a glass of milk.

Have one more.

Make another batch, because the family will be angry when they realize that they are all gone.
