About this recipe
We all love those delicious buttery shortbread cookies with our cuppa. The traditional shortbread cookies are baked with flour, butter, and sugar. Recently I came across this recipe of gluten-free shortbread where the flour was replaced with almond meal. I tried it and we all loved it.
This simple recipe needs the creaming of sugar and butter. But take care not to overwork the dough as this can make the cookies very crumbly. Just combine the ingredients together, bake, and voila! These cookies are grain-free too. Delicious gluten-free almond shortbread cookies are ready with your cuppa.
Just three main ingredients and 15 minutes are all you need to make these tender, crispy, buttery cookies. Do let me know how you like them.
