Swirl Shortbread Cookies are crispy, buttery and oh-so delicious. Great to pack as an edible gift for the holidays.
These swirl shortbread cookies were the first to be added to my holiday baking list. I saw them on Martha Stewart site and loved the ombré colored cookies. But I went with plain vanilla flavor.I love baking shortbread cookies. They are easy to put together with just a few ingredients and taste buttery and amazing. I have tried quite a few shortbread cookie recipes like this chocolate chip toffee cookies or these fruit-nut cookies.Also they can be made into drop cookies without any refrigeration or the dough can be chilled and then made into cut cookies. These swirl shortbread cookies can be made using a big star tip or a cookie press. One thing to keep in mind is the thickness of the dough. If it is very thick, it will be very hard to pipe the cookies. Add enough milk to loosen the dough.Once you have the right consistency, then you are good to go. These swirl shortbread cookies can be made into either round wreath shape or ‘S’ shape. They are cute either way. I hung up a few round ones on the tree too. Dip half of the cookies in melted chocolate for extra something special. Check out the other bloggers doing this Bake-a-thon.
