Sweetheart shortbread

Let the kids cream the butter and sugar and as you add an egg to the mixture. As the kids do this, you can mix the baking soda, cornstarch and flour, the baking powder and a bit of salt. Combine the two mixtures. Separate the dough before baking if you want them colored. Flat cookies will not need to be baked for long. For crunchy cookies, have them in the oven for a bit longer while covered with an aluminum foil.
