WHIPPED SHORTBREAD COOKIES adapted from Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons  Servings 8 cookies

Light, buttery and sweet little cookies are the perfect treat with some hot cocoa. They also make the perfect cookie to fill a tin for a homemade gift or to add to a cookie exchange or neighbor plate of goodies. Using a cookie cutter can add a great holiday touch.

6 tablespoons butter softened
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Icing, optiona

  • Cream the butter and powdered sugar together for at least 4 minutes.

  • Sift together the flour and cornstarch.

  • Add the flour and cornstarch just until combined.
  • Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic, and chill the dough for AT LEAST 2 hours in the refrigerator. 
  • Preheat the oven to 300°.
  • Cut the ball of dough into 8 pieces and roll each into a ball.
  • With a fork dipped in cornstarch (to prevent the dough from sticking to the dough), press on the top of each cookie dough ball then top with sprinkles.
  • Place the cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the cookies for 18-19 minutes, just until the cookies are set and light golden brown on the bottom.
  • Cool the cookies on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, you can do a light coating of icing if desired.
