Shortbread cookies can be a little bland but dress them up with some jam and you have a winner. I am making these for my family this Christmas, I am sure they will be gone quickly.

Preheat oven to 425° so it has time to heat up. In a mixer (hand or stand) blend powdered sugar and softened butter till well mixed.
I stopped the mixer and scrapped down the sides then added the egg whites, salt, vanilla extract and mix them till well blended. Slowly add the flour and mix well.
Line cookie pans with parchment paper and set aside. If your cookie dough is really stiff I moved my dough to a microwave safe dish and heat for 10 seconds. If it is still really stiff heat for another 10 seconds longer. You want the dough to be pliable enough to go into a pastry bag and be able to squeeze out the dough through a large open star tip.
