Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Healthy Fact of the Day

Whipped Shortbread Cookies, when enjoyed in moderation, provide a deliciously buttery treat for the holiday season.




  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Maraschino cherries or festive sprinkles for decoration (optional)




  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour and cornstarch.

  4. Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing well after each addition.

  5. Stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt, combining until the dough comes together.

  6. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the dough on medium-high speed for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes light and airy.

  7. Drop rounded tablespoons of the whipped shortbread dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

  8. If desired, press a maraschino cherry half into the center of each cookie or decorate with festive sprinkles.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  11. Store your Whipped Shortbread Cookies in an airtight container.
