Lets get straight away into how to bring these Holiday cookies together.
WHIPPED SHORTBREAD INGREDIENTS:
Butter: We are using room temperature softened butter. But we don’t want it over greasy or we are risking the cookies to spread more then we’d like!
Confectioners’ Sugar: Powdered sugar helps in creating light textured shortbread.
Flour: Measure flour using a kitchen scale or fluff the flour first, measure out in measuring cup and sweep it with a knife to level it off.
Cornstarch: Cornstarch makes the most light and puffy cookies that you will ever know!
These are just the easiest cookies to make! Just take care not to over measure your flour and cornstarch. And your cookies will bake all puffy and light! To make Shortbread:
Beat Butter and confectioners’ sugar together for 3-4 minutes
Beat in sifted flour and cornstarch next:
Chill the dough
Make cookie dough balls
Quickly chill in the freezer again while you preheat the oven
Make a pattern using fork: Optional but super cute!
Top with sprinkles and bake then
