Love it! I have made this recipe multiple times. I recently have modified the recipe to 1/2 C Almond Flour, 1/2 C Rice Flour, 1/2 C Corn Starch, 1/2 Cup of butter. Due to the Almond flour you need less butter because of the fat content. I really like the nutty taste the almonds add to the mix. I did try the recipe with 1 C Almond flour for the rice/almond flour mix but it turned out too greasy in my opinion. I kept the original cooking time.
This is the best shortbread I've ever made. I needed a gluten free crust for my cheesecake and this worked amazing. I just pressed the dough into the base of my springform pan and only baked the cookie for about 3/4 of the time (no browning at all), then poured the cheesecake filling on top and cooked that according to the instructions and it turned out amazing. Thanks for posting!!!
Great recipe!! I pressed the dough once chilled into mini tart pans and baked at 350F for approx 25 min - when it was lightly browned. It tasted awesome!! The texture was great and there was no aftertaste (I get that sometimes with my GF mix). Served it at a party and everyone enjoyed it, even those who were not GF. It was a bit crumbly for a tart so I might add a bit of xanthan gum next time to help it hold together better.
I made these exact cookies, but got the recipe off an e-mail list. I used sorghum flour though and felt that they needed something, but that could have been the flour (or that I had to use Earth Balance bcz of my CF DD). I did not feel that they were that fragile. Next time, I want to try making these into Mexican Wedding Cakes. I loved that they stayed together, didn't crumble when removing from the pan. I think it just needs some sugar on the outside (or melted chocolate!)
Yummy!!! My sons allergic to eggs so i tried these for him. I thought i needed to make them more kid friendly so i dipped them in melted chocolate!! They were devine!! He also is allergic to corn so i used arrowroot powder instead of corn starch and used brown rice flour, they turned out great!! Thank you!
This did not work for me at all. All six cookies turned into a pile of grease. I should have added more flour but usually the recipes are accurately represented.
I had a bit of trouble with this recipe for some reason. I kept checking the ingredients to make sure I was measuring everything correct, but my cookies kept spreading out too much while baking. I finally added some more powdered sugar and cornstarch and that seemed to help. It could just be a difference in how I measure my ingredients - wish there was a weight (i.e. oz. or grams) for each! I made one of the variations - I rolled in walnuts and added a thumbprint with strawberry jam. Delish!
I read all the reviews and expected fragile but seriously these fell apart the minute i slid the lifter under them . Sorry but for me a total waste of time and ingrdients.
Just pulled my first batch of these out of the oven!!! Couldn't wait for them to cool down completely... I am in total awe!! These are better than the shortbread I used to make pre-glutenfree. Absolutely love the recipe.
Love this recipe. very easy and tasty. I made the variation using almond meal flour. My grandsons love the cookies, too! This is my new "go to" cookie recipe for the little guys. Can't wait to try it as a pie crust.
