Whipped Shortbread Cookies
Whipped shortbread cookies are light as air with a delicious buttery flavor. They melt in your mouth because they're so soft, and only require a few simple ingredients.
Servings 24 cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 300F degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
In a large bowl beat the butter and powdered sugar until very fluffy and aerated (at least 5 minutes.
Mix in the flour, cornstarch, salt and vanilla extract.
Dust your hands with cornstarch, then form the dough into balls about 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon in size.
Place on the lined cookie sheets and press down the top of each cookie with the tines of a fork dipped in cornstarch (this prevents sticking). Add a few sprinkles to the top of each cookie.
Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until the tops look set.
