Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Hey guys so this recipe I am giving a face lift by adding some pictures that I took this morning while whipping up a batch of whipped shortbread cookies….(pun intended) 🙂 These are one of the greatest cookies that I have ever come across, so simple but so good! Thanks to my mom who first introduced me to these yummy cookies.  I remember her always making these during the holidays. These cookies are so delicate that they will literately melt in your mouth as you eat them. So delicious 🙂  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
