Whipped shortbread cookies are a Canadian Christmas tradition and a family classic that my grandmother gave to my mother who gave it to us (my sister and I). I remember my mother making these every year when I was growing up and It isn't Christmas in our family until we have these. Super simple and oh so tasty but they are a little crumbly so don't travel super well but they freeze well. Either way it never seems to matter in our family. I easily end up make two to three batches of them every year.
