This year for my Christmas Cookie Exchange I am doing a Trio of Shortbread (Whipped Shortbread, Orange Nutmeg Shortbread Cookies and Cherry Walnut Shortbread Cookies) in an attempt to try to find cookies to please everyone!
Growing up my mom always made Whipped Shortbread every year at Christmas time. I always waited with eager anticipation to put the cherries on the cookies, because that was my job. I’ve tweaked it along the way and here is the recipe I use. My family loves these melt in your mouth annual cookie tradition.
The key to this recipe is turning it from dough into whipped dough. Patience precious.
