These cookies from the Modern Baker cookbook live up to their name. They just melt in your mouth.
The ingredients are interesting. The only sugar is powdered sugar and there is quite a bit of cornstarch and baking powder in these cookies. I imagine these three ingredients are key to the pillowy feel they have in your mouth.
Don't worry, they aren't flavorless clouds. The orange extract and zest give them a subtle flavor that makes you want to brew some tea (even if you're not a tea drinker like myself) and have a some friends over to help you eat the cookies.
I'm so glad I tried these, I almost skipped them.
Hear, that other Modern Bakers? Give them a try!
