Shortbread is an easy to make treat, that can look like you spent hours making many different kinds, when you didn’t. If you are having a nice cup of tea with a friend, you would still like to be able to put out a simple, yet satisfying treat.
Shortbread can be made up several ways. I have made it simple and healthy. You can put you own unique twist on it.
Simple Shortbread Cookies (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Egg Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
Whisk flour, xanthan gum, and sugar together. Cream in coconut oil and vanilla.
Press into a 9″ by 13″ pan.
**Here’s the fun part. You can leave in plain, press an almond or other nut into each 2″ by 2″ square, top with chopped nuts, dark chocolate, or chopped dry fruit. Press nuts or fruit in a little.
Bake for 20 minutes for softer, 25 minutes for crispier squares. Let cool them cut into 2″ by 2″ squares.
**If desired you can melt one ounce of dairy free chocolate and drizzle over squares.
Makes approximately 30- 2″ squares. Freeze well 🙂
