Mom's Whipped Shortbread
My favourite shortbread cookie recipe. These kind are melt in your mouth delicious.
- 1 cup butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 24 maraschino cherries pat dry
Whip butter and sugar together with electric mixer until creamy.
On low gradually add flour. When all flour is added, turn speed to high and whip for 8 minutes.
Fill piping bag with batter, use extra large star or circle tip.
Pipe dollop of batter on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Top each cookie with maraschino cherry.
Bake 325 for 15- 17 minutes. Cool completely.
Store in refrigerator ( this will also firm cookies if you find they are too crumbly)
