Shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth // Melt-in-your-Mouth Shortbread (lactose-free)

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.



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, rollĀ 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.
