Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Combine flour and cornstarch. Beat butter and 1 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Add nuts; mix just until blended.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass.
Bake 13 min. or until centers are set and tops are lightly browned; cool on baking sheets 5 min. Add warm cookies, 1 at a time, to remaining sugar; turn to evenly coat both sides of each. Cool completely on wire racks.
Enjoy a serving of these powdery classic cookies for an occasional sweet treat.
Line the baking sheets with parchment before use. The baked cookies will slide right off and you won't have to wash the pans in between uses.
