Recipe Ingredients for Easy Shortbread

200 g unsalted butter
125 g caster sugar
335 g flour
2 large egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Easy Shortbread

  1. preheat oven: 180C, fan 160C, 350F, Gas 4

  2. Mix the butter and sugar together until they are well combined.

  3. Add the egg yolks and vanilla extract and mix well.

  4. Add the gluten free flour in stages, mixing it into the other ingredients well before adding more gluten free flour. You will find that you will have to use your hands to incorporate the majority of the flour as the dough will become quite stiff.

  5. Lightly flour a surface with gluten free flour to roll the shortbread dough out on. Roll out the dough to a depth of 5mm (").

  6. Cut cookie shapes out of the dough and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Re-roll the trimmings so that you can make more cookies with the remaining dough.

  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes until the edges of the shortbread are turning golden. Remove from the oven and leave for a few minutes on the baking tray, then transfer to a cooling rack.

  8. When the shortbread is completely cold sift some icing sugar over the cookies for decoration. Or for real decadence dip into melted dark chocolate and allow to set before eating.

  9. These shortbread biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week
