Christmas Whipped Shortbread Cookies

The holidays wouldn't be complete without Christmas baking! Traditionally, Filipinos don't do a lot of baking and our holiday cookies usually consists of the Danish kind that comes in a blue tin. So when I first tasted whipped shortbread at my mother in laws, I was hooked and addicted. I literally inhale these during the holidays. I love the melt in your mouth, buttery, decadence without being overly sweet. 

Last year, I started baking them at home to start a new Christmas tradition with my daughter. My dear friend Sam came over to help and she showed me her version with the glazed cherries. I thought the cookies were delightful as is but those glazed cherries make them amazing. And I love the pop of Christmas colours that they add. These treats are are great for gifting and are super easy to make with only 5 ingredients!
