Easy gluten free shortbread recipe. Going gluten free can be difficult, especially around the holidays when everyone else throws caution to the wind and delves into the best goodies and feels you should too.
These simple shortbread cookies are your new solution. A couple of key notes:
*I used ghee, but you could use coconut oil
*If you use butter, you may want to use less salt.
*I used a gluten free flour blend with xanthan gum (Namaste from Costco)
Gluten Free Shortbread
2 tbls ghee (or c oil)
2 tbls maple syrup
1/2 heaping cup flour (+1 tbls)
dash or two of salt and vanilla
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cream together the ghee and maple syrup. And in the salt and vanilla. Mix in the flour – you may find it easier to knead it together.
Flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to desired thickness. Cut into individual cookie sizes, use a fork to mark the cookies. Set the cookies slightly apart from each other to help them cook evenly.
Bake until lightly golden brown, roughly 15-20 minutes.
