How to make

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Combine butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extract in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, cornstarch and salt. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 10-inch square. Cut into 16 (2 1/2-inch) squares; diagonally cut each square in half. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle tops with large grain sugar. Bake 10-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
