Bed and Breakfast Cookies
I stumbled across a website that collects recipes and b&b properties and puts them together. Now...if I could only visit all these fine places and try out all their recipes....

Charleston, South Carolina
A true taste of the South set in a charming architectural treasure!
Yields 2 dozen
1 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
Cookie Glaze (see recipe below)
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Sift in flour and cornstarch, mix well. Add flavorings, blending well. Chill 1 hours.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place 3" apart on greased cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie with the bottom of a small glass dipped in water. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. (Cookies do not brown, but should be cooked through to center). Carefully remove to wire cooling rack (cookies very fragile). Spread cookie glaze evenly over each while still warm. Cool and store in airtight containers.
1 cup powdered sugar
