Simple Whipped Shortbread

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by womanofmystery

This is an adaptation from an old Canadian Living Recipe. It is simple, a small batch, and easy to manage on a busy day. The original recipe called for Rice Flour and well as Flour, but I substituted Cornstarch just fine.

Tried this recipe and it is perfect!
Nice 'n easy and oh so light and melt in your mouth. I separated the dough adding different treats like glace cherries n chocolate chips.
It definitely delivered, thank you womanofmystery!
