NEW RECIPE ALERT: Shortbread Cookies (Low Carb, Sugar & Grain Free)
I'm excited to share my new recipe for basic Shortbread Cookies. A number of you have asked me for a good basic shortbread recipe. I'm sharing that recipe today on my guest post for Honeyville. These cookies turned out awesome and are so very easy to make and they use very few ingredients.
I used my favorite Honeyville's blanched almond flour, Kerrygold butter, Swerve confectioner's sweetener and a couple of other ingredients. Shortbread cookies are a basic butter cookie that are usually not too sweet. However, they can be dressed up to become the most decadent cookie if you choose to by simply stirring other ingredients into the batter, glazing them, flavoring the dough, frosting or cutting them out into all kinds of cute shapes (dipping them in melted chocolate would also be awesome). I chose to keep them simple because that way you have no excuse not to try them...and seriously, if you can make something that tastes yummy and it's also easy to make, why would you ever choose something more complicated? These cookies are easy to make, delicious, and can be simple or elegant depending on how you choose to make them. After mixing my dough together, I rolled it into a log, wrapped and chilled it until firm and then "voila"...slice and bake cookies! I really love these cookies and look forward to transforming them into all kinds of yummy treats. Check out these beauties below. To get the recipe, just click here: Shortbread Cookies. Enjoy!
