Cathy's Whipped Shortbread Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chef burnt toast

This is an old family recipe. My Great aunt used to just drop them from a spoon onto a cookie sheet. I use my cookie gun and get about 120 cookies. They are an excellent-melt-in-your-mouth cookie. I decorate them with cherries and icing.
