Truvia Shortbread Cookies

I experimented for the first time with baking with stevia leaf sweetener, my favorite sugar alternative. I found this recipe on Truvia's website. They came out sweet and tasty with a buttery texture.

Reduced Sugar Shortbread Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 1/2 Tbspn spoonalbe Truvia (or 12 packets)
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbspn cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. Place butter, Truvia, sugar, egg, and vanilla in bowl of electric mixer. Affix paddle attachment. Cream together for 1 1/2 minutes, set aside. Blend flour, cornstarch, and salt together in medium bowl. Fold dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Roll tablespoons of dough into 1-inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart. Flatten cookies gently with the bottom of a glass dipped in cornstarch. Bake in oven for 16-18 minutes or until edges of cookies are light golden brown. Place cookie sheet on cooling rack for 20-30 minutes before removing cookies.
