What is the difference between creamy butter and whipped butter when making shortbread cookies?

Question by Christy B: What is the difference between creamy butter and whipped butter when making shortbread cookies?
I’m making shortbread cookies and I usually use ‘Ultra creamy butter’. However I can’t find this in the store so I bought regular butter, but was wondering if I ‘whip it’ with the mixer, would that make it creamier? Will my cookies come out better?

I am unfamiliar with ‘ultra creamy butter’—is it whipped butter in a tub?

Whipped butter is full of air, and not suitable for baking simply because you can’t measure it accurately.

Ultra creamy butter shouldn’t be any different from regular butter. All butter is creamy if it is at the right temperature.

For cooking, I would always use regular sticks of butter—that is what the recipe intends for you to use.
