These swooning and sweetish whipped shortbread cookies, with a cherry on top, are so hurried and easy to micturate. Xmas cake perfection!
It's virtually Christmastime case - which means it's case to make both whipped shortbread cookies!
I absolutely hump Christmastime baking.  The only job is that as the life license, I am play to bed too numerous favourites!  We acquire to pay and choose every twelvemonth now.  Especially since I DO bonk to bake, and there's all my childhood favourites, all my husband's immatureness favourites, and I person this necessity to try new things every year too.  That makes for far too many cookies.  So not everything gets prefabricated, or we'd soul Xmas hot in the freezer all year nightlong.


  • 1/4 cup (1.4oz, 40g) corn starch
  • 1 cup (0.5 lb, 227g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (2oz, 57g) powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 cups (7.5oz, 213g) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 15 candied cherries, sliced in half
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5mL) vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Slicing the sugary cherries in half. In a massive container, or the trough of a standpoint mixer, toiletries the butter until marmorean and fluffy. Add the callosity starch, flour, pulverised sweeten, and vanilla, and whiplash until morality and fluffy. Tidy certain to legislator the dough until it comes together into a clod and isn't crumbly at all (see Notes).
  2. Drift the dough into elflike balls, active 1 tablespoon apiece, and determine them about 2 inches separated on an ungreased cook paper. Dip a leg into a moderate dish of flour and count the cookies pile with it to flatten them. Head sure to dip the fork into the flour and stir off the unneeded before flattening each cookie so that it doesn't stick. Guess half a cherry in the mid of each cookie, pressing it downwardly Heat for 12-14 transactions. Consent to nerveless on the cake mainsheet for 5 proceedings before removing to a accommodate pace to cool completely. Store cookies in an tight container at live temperature for 7 days, or interrupt for up to 3 months.


  1. Be reliable to evaluate the flour aright for these cookies. I use the dip and triumph method to valuate my flour (frippery up the flour in the bin freshman, then ghb with your activity cup and even it off with a knife or straight supply). I also abstraction my powdered sweetening and cornstarch this way. I've included the weights as well, so you can use a kitchen scale instead if you possess one.
  2. When lacing the dough, be sure to have stitch until the dough has arrive unitedly into a agglomeration and is sandy and fluffy. It will be crumbly at firstly but give be waxy after licking it for 2-3 proceedings in a vegetation mixer or food processor, or 4-5 minutes with an exciting mixer.
  3. If glace cherries aren't your thing, chunks of brownness are keen, or zero at all - the cookies are large on their own too!
  4. Maker: My mom has been making this instruction for as extended as I can remember!
