  • 6 Tbsp Butter (Room Temp, salted)
  • 3 Tbsp Confectioners' Sugar
  • ½ Cup+1 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Cornstarch


  • In a medium mixing bowl beat butter and confectioners' sugar for 3-4 minutes. Don't skimp on the beating time for light textured cookies.
  • Beat sifted flour and cornstarch in the bowl and beat only till combined.
  • Chill the dough for about half an hour in the fridge, or till it's firm to touch. Pro Tip: To speed up this process, you may chill the dough in freezer until firm.
  • Roll into 9 cookie balls, press their tops with a cornstarch dipped fork and top with sprinkles.
  • Set the cookies on a lined baking tray and allow to chill in the freezer till you preheat the oven.
  • When ready to bake preheat oven at 300 deg F and bake cookies for 19-20 minutes. Or till their tops look set.
  • Allow to cool on the baking tray.


Storing Information:
Whipped shortbread Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temp up to a week.
For longer storage, you may store them in fridge for another week. Allow to come to room temperature before serving!
Freezing instructions:
  • Both baked and unbaked cookies can be stored in the freezer. 
  • To freeze unbaked cookie balls, keep the balls on a tray in freezer till they firm up. Store them in ziploc bag then. No need to thaw before baking. Just add a minute more to the baking time.
  • Baked cookies can be stored in an airtight freezer friendly container for up to 2 months. Thaw the cookies before serving.
To Amplify the flavor:
These cookies are not super sweet to taste. So if you like to amp up their flavor profile.
  1. Top them off with melted chocolate.
  2. Place a cherry in their center.
  3. Make a dent and top with jams and preserves of your choice before baking.
