Meltaways With Cream Cheese Frosting

These are so simple to make and have an amazing texture. As the name implies, they literally just melt in your mouth! They’re not too sweet but just taste like a nice, buttery shortbread. Another great holiday variation of this recipe can be to use peppermint extract in place of the vanilla and frost the finished cookies, then garnish with crushed candy canes!
