Spiced Shortbread

spiced shortbread

Last night, I decided to make some cookies. I had seen a recipe for spiced shortbread and thought it sounded delicious, so wanted to see if I could make a gluten free version.

These turned out wonderfully well, and I thought it would be nice to share the recipe with you guys as they make great Christmassy treats – either for yourself, or for someone else if you’re feeling generous.

To make them gluten free we substituted the plain flour with EDMOINDS gluten free plain flour, although you could try using any plain gf flour you have on hand)

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. In a bowl cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. We used our stand mixer, but you can beat the butter and sugar by hand (it'll take about five minutes).

  3. In a separate bowl, sift flour and spices before folding in the creamed butter until a soft dough starts to form (fold with your hands, and be careful not to overwork the dough).
  4. Sprinkle a dry, clean surface with sugar and gently roll the dough out with a rolling pin until it is about 1cm thick. Sprinkle the dough with extra sugar to avoid it sticking to the rolling pin if needed.
