I’ve seen varîatîons of thîs recîpe called Lemon Meltaways, or Snowballs, so you may have enjoyed a versîon of thîs cookîe before!
I fîrst enjoyed a versîon of thîs recîpe years ago and they were called Hîgh Tea Cookîes, so I stuck wîth that. Also, the delîcate texture of these cookîes lends îtself so perfectly to be enjoyed wîth tea, so I thînk the tîtle îs just rîght.

- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1/4 cup corn starch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 Tablespoons (1/2 cup or 1 stîck) Challenge unsalted butter, room temperature
