Butter cookies with whipped shortbread are the delicious pastries that usually accompany a cup of tea or coffee.

They are crumbly and melt-in-your-mouth: one pulls the other!


They are made with a special shortbread dough, whipped shortbread.

It is so called because you must first whip the butter and powdered sugar with an electric beater.

Once a swollen and frothy mixture is obtained, the flour is added and the dough is ready!
