Whipped shortbread cookies

Prep 15 min
Total 45 min



1 1/3 cups
all-purpose flour
3 tbsp
3/4 tsp
3/4 cup
unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup
1 tbsp
1 tsp


  • PREHEAT oven to 325F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  • WHISK flour, cornstarch and salt in a bowl.
  • BEAT butter and sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium-high until very fluffy and aerated, 4 to 5 min, scraping sides and bottom of bowl. Add milk and vanilla and beat for 1 min.
  • SIFT in half of the flour mixture, then fold in with a spatula until just combined. Repeat. Spoon half of the batter into a piping bag fitted with a large, open star tip.
  • PIPE batter into 1 1/2-in.-wide rosettes, 1 in. apart, on a prepared sheet.
  • BAKE until edges are lightly browned, 15 to 16 min. Let cool for 3 min, then transfer to a rack to cool. Repeat with remaining batter.

Kitchen Tip: Trace 1 1/2-in. circles onto parchment. Flip the parchment paper over and use circles as a guide when piping rosettes.
