      These cookies are very very good, but very fragile to handle. I've never made cookies w/o adding egg and so I was a bit hesitant about these ingredients, but curious. They came together nicely and baked up perfectly in 17 minutes at 325. I chose not to sandwich these cookies together with icing between b/c of the delicacy of the cookie. I"m sure it's from the cornstarch that these cookies are so light and airy. Not too sweet either as I thought they would be. I was unsure if I'd need the icing, but it does add just the right amount of sweet. Made for AU Recipeswap!~
