1/3 C. light corn syrup
1/2 t. salt
Food coloring (3 different colors)*
3 1/2 C. sifted confectioner sugar + additional for sprinkling
Measure the butter, corn syrup, salt, and sugar into a large bowl and mix well; when dough gets too stiff knead it with your hands.
Divide the dough into 3 portions and add a few drops of each color of food coloring to each portion.
Pinch off small pieces of the dough, roll into balls, and press lightly with a fork. Sprinkle confectioner's sugar lightly over the pieces. A sifter would work well.
