Whipped Shortbread Recipe

This is Megan's favourite Christmas cookie recipe, I guess I better start baking soon. Not sure where this recipe originated from, it was my dads recipe.

Whipped Shortbread

1 lb. butter
3 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup icing sugar

Cream butter and add sugar. Add remaining ingredients. (For best results mix with clean hands first) Beat with electric mixer until the consistency of whipped cream. Drop by teaspoonfuls or roll in balls and press with a fork. Bake at 350F. for 12 minutes.
Enjoy. They keep well in a sealed container, in a cool place, for weeks.
