What is Maizena?

Corn starch or maize starch is the starch derived from the corn grain. The starch is obtained from the endosperm of the kernel. Corn starch is a common food ingredient, used in thickening sauces or soups, and in making corn syrup and other sugars

  • Beat butter and icing sugar well.
  • Add Maizena and mix well to combine.
  • Add 2 cups flour and mix in then continue and add the balance little at a time until the dough is nice and soft.
  • Bake at 180C / 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are just lightly browned.
  • Don’t overbake!
  • Once cold, sandwich when cold with butter icing
  • Dip one side in melted chocolate as a special treat!



  • Store the filled biscuits in an airtight container for up to three days, if you have the power not to eat them in one sitting.
  • Or you can bake it as it will store well in the freezer.
  • Never substitute the butter wholly or partially with margarine. Choose the best quality butter that you can get.
  • Cornstarch is the ingredients that make the melting moments so crumbly and light
  • Omit salt if you are using the salted butter
  • How to shape the cookies: Use a small amount of the cookie dough to form a small ball with your hands. Place the ball on an oiled baking paper, well separated from each other. Press it down with the back of the fork to form a pattern. You can also pipe it onto the baking paper.  Choose a piping bag nozzles to create the pattern.
