The first thing that I did was soften the butter slightly in the microwave.  

Then I dumped it in a large mixing bowl with some icing sugar.

I used an electric hand mixer to cream these two ingredients together.

Once they were creamy I added in some corn starch and vanilla extract.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat the mixture until it was smooth and creamy.

Next I began adding 3 cups of Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour one cup at a time beating after each addition.

After adding the last cup I continued beating with the electric hand mixer until the cookie dough was light and fluffy.

I placed parchment paper on a cookie sheet and set the oven for 325F.

Now I got out my new cookie press that I had been waiting to try and began making Christmas shapes.  I ended up not using the parchment paper for later batches when using the cookie press.

I put the cookies in the oven at 325F for 14-16 minutes or until they were just starting to turn golden brown around the bottom edges.

The cookies are very fragile when warm so I allowed them to cool completely on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a plate.

If you do not have a cookie press you can drop them by spoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and decorate each cookie with a piece of glazed cherry.

Either way these Gluten Free Whipped Shortbread Cookies are a melt in your mouth treat that will quickly disappear from any Holiday dessert tray!

Best shortbread ever! I did sift flour but probably didn’t need to. Truly amazing and I will ditch any other recipes! I was concerned about using regular gf flour but it was fabulous!

Do the whipped shortbread freeze well? If not, how long do they keep at room temp?
