Gluten Free Lemon Shortbread

Gluten Free Lemon Shortbread created by Jubes

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 150 deg C.
  • Soften but do not melt the butter.
  • Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and well combined.
  • Roll dough on a maize cornflour dusted surface to a 1 cm thickness. Cut into fingers or press out shapes using a cookie cutter.
  • Place on a baking tray and prick with a fork.
  • Bake for 25-30 mins until pale but crisp (longer slower baking is the trick with shortbread).
  • Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
  • 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
