Whipped Shortbread Cookies

‘Tis the season to be jolly. These Whipped Shortbread Cookies are perfectly jolly. They’re butter, light and fluffy and just melt away in your mouth. The cherry on top adds the perfect amount of sweetness to these buttery treats as well.

The shape also makes them very elegant. They look like a lot of work, put really all you need is 4 ingredients, an oven and piping bags. Easy peasy. The perfect cookie to whip up when you need a last minute dessert to bring to the christmas or holiday party!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

– 1 cup butter

– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

– 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

– 6-8 maraschino cherries, halved

 

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Whip butter for five minutes at a high speed. Mix in confectioners sugar and beat for another 3 minutes at medium speed. Add in flour and continue to beat mixture for approximately 10 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Pipe mixture onto cookie sheets in the shape of rosettes (I used a Wilton star tip). Place a half cherry in the middle of the cookie.

Bake cookies for 15 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
