Lime Meltaway Spritz

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon grated lime peel
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Green food coloring, optional

LIME GLAZE:
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
4 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
Directions
In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Combine flour and cornstarch; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in lime peel and vanilla. Tint half of the dough green if desired.
Using a cookie press fitted with a ribbon disk, press dough into 12-in.-long strips 2-in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into 3-in. pieces (do not separate pieces).
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; brush over cooled cookies. Let stand until set. Yield: about 3 dozen
