So it is most definitely that time of the year to bake cookies with the holiday season most definitely upon us. Also, shortbread cookies are a favorite of mine all year round.
But still each year I love getting to make my favorite cookies, such as Peppermint Kiss Cookies or even Meringue Cookies.
Still I am always up for trying out a new cookie recipe if possible, as well.
This year, my mom shared a new recipe she found for Easy Whipped Shortbread Cookies.
Well, this past Saturday it was downright chilly here in NY. It snowed earlier in the day for the first real snow of the season.
Therefore, I thought what better day to stay in and get my baking on.
So, I baked 3 different cookies, including the Easy Whipped Shortbread Cookies.
But I decided to cut the recipe in half, which still gave me almost 4 dozen shortbread cookies!
Plus, I used rainbow sugar crystal sprinkles in red and green to make my shortbread cookies all the more Christmas festive for the season.
These cookies lived up to their name. As they were truly so easy to make. Plus, they are light and basically a fluffy, whipped shortbread cookie.

So, without further ado adding my Easy Whipped Shortbread Cookies recipe for all to enjoy this Christmas season.

I have a list of cookies that I only make at Christmas. I don’t make every cookie every year, but they are all sort of saved for Christmas time, which makes them special. One of my favorite is a peppermint brownie – those two flavors together are one of my favorites:)
Your peppermint brownies do sound amazing and thank you for sharing with me. Merry Christmas now!! 🙂
Wow, those are easy and fantastic looking! Yay! Pinned this recipe 🙂
Thank you Jen for your kind words, tweet and pin, too!! 🙂

Happy snowy Monday my friend.

Those cookies look delish. My favorites are peanut butter blossoms and good old-fashioned cut out sugar cookies. My kids still like decorating them.
Those sound amazing, too and have made them in the past, too! And yay to cookie decorating still, as well 🙂
these look delish! I’ve been on a baking kick, so I’m pinning this and trying it asap!
Thank you for pinning and hope you can indeed try this recipe very soon now!! 🙂

Thanks Carol!! 🙂
I LOVE shortbread cookies. I don’t even know what they are, but you have cleared it up for me. I like mine chocolate dipped or whipped. YES.
I may need to dip what I have left or make even more to dip in chocolate. Just saying and you just inspired me 😉
Ooh, these look very tasty. And so easy! I may have to try them with Eve this year…
Thanks Bev and do hope you try them for Eve, too 😉
These look SO good. You know I love cookies and sweets of all kinds, but have never even heard of whipped shortbread. I can’t wait to try them!
Yay and so glad to share with you, as I definitely know how much you love to bake and cookies, too 😉
These look delicious!! I think I have the next baking activity for my son and I.
Thanks Gail and hope you and your son enjoy them as much as we have, too 🙂

Oh WOW! I love the new look of your blog! It’s gorgeous, very snazzy indeed – nice job! 🙂 I have to say, I’m so proud of you for sticking with this blog and just growing it over the years. Since I’ve known you (four years I think?), you’ve just decided what you wanted and gone for it, full steam. It’s so inspiring… keep going! This cookie recipe looks so yummy – you just reminded me that this is the first year in a while I didn’t bake Christmas cookies. So glad you got round to baking these… they look delish!
Melanie, thank you for all your kind words about my blog’s updated look, forty cookie recipe and for me, as well. I am so thrilled that we have known each other for I think almost 5 years now and hope we can continue to follow each other’s endeavors for many more years to come. Happy New Year and wishing you only the best in 2017 now!! 🙂

Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe at the #RecipeSharingParty. I look forward to what you will share next week! We hope you’ll come back again next Thursday when we open our doors at 9:00 AM EST. Pinned, Yummed, Tweeted!
The last few parties when I try to yum from your buttons, or my browser extension I get an error there is a problem and to try later. I don’t know if anyone else is having trouble but thought I would mention it.
Thanks Marilyn and have contacted Yummly last week as I noticed it and wasn’t sure if it was just on my browser end. But they are working on it. I hope I hear back from them soon as I even tried different share buttons, but still having this issue.

Just realized I hadn’t seen this and am finally catching up. The cookies look delicious….just wish I could motivate myself to bake/cook etc. Maybe soon. Glad Christmas went well and now we look toward a happy New Year! Hope it’s a good one for you and the family. Love…..
Thanks Aunt Gloria so very much and now wishing you a very, Happy New Year, as well. Love you, too!! xoxo 😉
Looks really yummy Janine and perfect not only for the holiday season but also for any day of the week I suppose. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the holidays, and Happy New Year! ♥
