Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius.
Cream butter and gradually add in the sifted icing sugar and beat till pale and fluffy.
Sift plain flour, wheat flour and corn flour twice.
Fold the ingredients together with a spatula until it is well incorporated. Do not beat or over mix as you will not achieve the airy texture.
Put the dough into a piping bag with star dip nozzle.
Pipe the cookies onto the baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave 1 cm in between cookies as they will expand a little during baking.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies turn light golden brown.
Leave it to cool on a cooling rack before storing them in air-tight container.
