I bake with cornstarch (3/4 tsp) and 4 cups flour. They are perfect. I roll to 1/4" and bake for 8 min. Slightly a touch of golden on the bottom!

 

I am a newbie and I have a few questions.  Does the cornstarch keep your cookies form spreading when you bake them?  Also, does it help the dough pull away from the mixing bowl?  

I look for the dough to pull away from the sides to know it is done.  For me most of the dough will not cling to the bowl.

Thank you so much.
