GLUTEN-FREE DAIRY-FREE ALMOND SHORTBREAD

First off…this is not completely my recipe – I found it on King Arthur’s Flour website, here.  But I did tweak it a bit and made it dairy-free, also.

I have my own almond flour shortbread recipe here,  but it does have flour and real butter.

The texture of these is soft (they have you roll them into balls and make individual cookies), so I put them back in a 200 degree oven for awhile to make them a little more crunchy.  

I dusted them with powdered sugar and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and they are yummy.  Not as flakey as if made with real butter, in my opinion, but if you’re dairy free the Earth Balance sticks work well.

Printable Recipe

1 cup almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill is fab)

3 tablespoons softened Earth Balance vegan stick

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sprinkle powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice

….

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, with a fork, combine the flour, margarine, powdered sugar, and salt, until crumbly.  Stir in the vanilla.  Dough should start to stick together very well.

Place in freezer for a few minutes to chill.  Flatten into a disc a little more than 1/4 inch thick.  Cut into wedges and prick with a fork.  Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until edges are nicely browned.

Makes 12 cookies

    I can’t wait to try another of your recipes! I was ready to temporarily add dairy and eggs back in, just for the holidays, so I wouldn’t feel left out! I have never doubted your recipes and only need a sweet or two for a satisfying holiday season! Thanks so much Linda, for having my back! As always, Laurel

      I think these would be great with some lemon zest or almond extract, too. They aren’t super decadent but do satisfy that I-need-a-cookie urge!!

    Great, just what I need through the holidays. Thanks bunches, kisses and hugs!

    I’ll have to try these. I have found that if I keep my earth balance really really cold it helps to make things a little more flaky:)
