Whipped Shortbread

This is a great recipe, and simple. It’s from the Best of the Bridge cookbook series, and their recipes always work! This particular recipe doubles well.

“These melt in your mouth! The secret is in the beating.”


  • 1 cup butter (do not use margarine)
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour


Cream butter and sugar. Add flour and beat for 10 minutes. Drop from small spoon onto cookie sheet. Decorate with maraschino cherry pieces if you wish. Bake at 350°F for about 10-12 minutes until bottoms are lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen small cookies.
