Mum's Whipped Shortbread are Christmas cookie perfection!  Light and airy, they are a melt in your mouth shortbread treat! 
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 23 minutes
Servings 24 Cookies


  • 1 Cup Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Icing Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Dash Salt


  1. Preferably using a stand mixer with whisk attachment and on med-high speed, add in the butter and cream (about 3 min).  Add in the rest of the ingredients and on low speed, mix all together.  Turn up the speed to whip for about 8-10 minutes until the dough is lighter in colour and looks nice and fluffy.  Evenly distribute dough onto a cookie sheet and add sprinkles or maraschino cherry piece to the top.  Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until they are barely browned.  They should really be basically white in colour.  

    This recipe can easily be doubled which is usually what I do as I find that they really get eaten up quickly!
