|| Melt in your mouth whipped Shortbread

Christmas Came Early

So Natrel just released Lactose-Free Butter. LACTOSE-FREE BUTTER!

I stuffed my daughter in the car (buckled her up tight) and proceeded to buy 5 packages. || Melt in your mouth whipped Shortbread Lactose-Free Butter

I also brought the ingredients for these shortbread cookies and a baguette.

First I ate few hunks of baguette spread with glorious butter. Then I whipped up these whipped shortbread cookies.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies Melt in your Mouth

They are one of the first Christmas Cookies I made on my own as a little girl. And they’re still my favourite today. The recipe hails from The Harrowsmith Cookbook, and credit is given to Shirley Hill of Picton Ontario.

They are very delicious, very easy and always a huge hit.

The key to these is to really beat them between ingredients. Don’t stop when the ingredients are mixed, give them a minute or more to beat at each step.

Today I finished the cookies with chunks of Purdy’s dark chocolate and makde a few with a little candied cherry on tip.

I know I mentioned beating after every ingredient…I’m repeating myself so you take me seriously. THIS IS THE SECRET TO THE BEST WHIPPED SHORTBREAD EVER.

These melt-in-your-mouth whipped shortbread cookies are great for a cookie-exchange. They make perfect Christmas Cookies, or are perfect Tea Party cookies or if you’re looking for a cookie for coffee or tea.

  • Author: melanie


1/2 lb. Butter

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup icing sugar

1 cup flour



First, beat butter until light. Beat longer than you expect for even more melt-in-your-mouthiness.

Then add the remaining ingredients one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Next, roll into small balls and flatten with a fork (or just drop them – that’s what I do).

Bake at 300F for 30 min. Keep an eye on the cookies because they look the best when they come out before they brown.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
