I love shortbread and I always make a batch of this at Christmas...sometimes more as it is so easy to do and whips up real quick. These melt in your mouth!! Please do not substitute margarine for the butter.....
I love how easy it is and I don't have to roll and cut!
Goodness ..the old saying about a second on the lips and a lifetime on the hips is so true with these yummies....I don't think these even touch my lips!! LOL Enjoy!!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter, icing sugar, vanilla and salt. Gradually add cornstarch and flour. Whip with an electric mixer until fluffy. Roll into balls and put cookies on cool baking sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in flour Decorate with candied cherries or dragees if desired. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 1/2 minute or so or until easy to move without breaking, on baking sheet, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
I use my cuisinart and just throw all the ingredients in, turn it on and it is whipped in just seconds.

Note: Dress these up by pressing a half a candied cherry in the middle, or decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles. I sprinkle colored sugar on them as soon as I put them on the cooling rack. There is till enough heat to help the sugar stick.
