Whipped Shortbread Cookies

What’s the difference between shortbread and butter cookies?

The main difference between shortbread and butter cookies is that butter cookies are made with butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Shortbread cookies are made with just butter, sugar, and flour. This makes them less sweet than butter cookies.

How long does whipped shortbread last?

Whipped shortbread will last for up to three days in an airtight container. The cookies should be stored at room temperature.

Can you freeze whipped shortbread?

Yes! Whipped shortbread freezes well. Just store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To freeze shortbread, it is important that the cookies are completely cooled before putting them in a freezer-safe container. You can also wrap the cookie dough in a couple layers of plastic wrap and then place in a freezer-safe container. To prevent freezer burn, you should eat them within 3 months of freezing them.
