    jackandfiona's Note:

    I thought I would post this, as none of the Zaar shortbread recipes show up under GF. This recipe comes from the Chelsea Sugar website, as they are now using maize cornflour for their icing sugar base. Any GF icing sugar will do.

      For Christmas I am going to use almond essence instead of the lemon and dip one end in chocolate.

      This is an excellent gluten free shortbread. It' a very rich biscuit. I placed the dough in the fridge for about 30mins before rolling out between 2 sheets of baking paper. Good instructions. As with most GF doughs you need to be careful and gentle lifting the cookies to the baking tray. The biscuits did spread a little, due to the high butter ratio.The round shapes worked better than the fancy cutters. I think the chocolate dipped shortbread sounds very decadent and would be great for a special occassion or to give the shortbread as a gift. Thanks for sharing a great recipe
