These are quite possibly the best buttery ‘grain-free’ ‘sugar-free’ short bread you have ever had! They’re relatively easy to make, and the crumb and mouthfeel are like a melt-in-your-mouth just-baked regular shortbread. I love that these are sugar free using a touch of organic stevia powder and only use a quarter cup of arrowroot to give them some structure. You can use these as a base dough for cookie cutting just make sure you adhere to the freezing of the dough step to allow your dough to be firm and pliable to work with. Unlike store bought shortbread these babies won’t buy you a ticket on the blood sugar rollercoaster due to the protein, healthy fat and fibre.
We love the combination of fresh lemon zest, vanilla and ginger in these shortbread, but please feel free to add your favourite spices. We especially love Pumpkin Spice from Simply Organic brand in these too around the holiday season. Perfect with a cuppa too! Do remember to allow your shortbread to completely cool, otherwise they may fall apart! That’s the nature of grain free baking – it really test our patience, but the wait will be well worth it, I promise! 😉
