 --------  ------------  -------------------------------- 
    1      cup           Butter 
      3/4  cup           Icing sugar 
    2      cups          All-purpose flour 
    1      teaspoon      Cornstarch 
    1      pinch         Baking powder 
    1      pinch         Salt 
  
 In a mixing bowl, cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Stir
 in flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt until very smooth. Form into a
 firm ball. Place on lightly floured surface. Lightly knead five or six
 times. Form level teaspoonfuls into small balls. Place two inches apart on
 unbuttered baking sheet. With fingertips or fork, gently press each ball to
 slightly flatten it. If desired, place a cherry piece in the centre of
 each. Bake in oven at 325 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until edges are
 slightly golden and firm to the touch. Cool. Makes five to six dozen. From
