Gluten Free Shortbread (with dairy free option)

There is nothing like shortbread, and it is something that i know i missed.  Shop bought cake to me just didn’t hit the mark, however this stuff needs to come with a health warning and you cant just have one piece!! I have been known to polish off the lot in a few days – but there is hope… a top tip.. and i suggest you do this!! I does freeze well so freeze this in between parchment paper and then take out what you want.  Phew ive just saved you a few dress sized lolimg_3897

Servings: 8
Calories: 1kcal

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Butter
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 4 oz Cornflour
  • 8 oz Plain Gluten Free Flour
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 140′ fan, 160 non fan.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until its white and fluffy.
  • Sieve the dry ingredients into a separate bowl and gradually add to the creamed mixture and knead until smooth.
  • Take a baking tin which is 12″ x 8″ and smooth into the tin and smooth the top. Mark into fingers and prick with a fork.
  • Place in a middle shelf for 30 minutes – 40 minutes until it has a light slight golden colour to it.
  • Remove from oven and dredge with caster sugar whilst still hot. Run your knife back along your markings of the fingers you cut carefully with a sharp knife and leave to cool in tin, which will allow this to firm up.
  • Once the shortbread is totally cool, take a small palette knife and ease the shortbread out. Store any shortbread in a airtight container with some kitchen paper. Or you can freeze this in a Tupperware container with parchment paper between.
  • Enjoy!

    Can you tell me do you grease the tin x

    • November 27, 2018 / 9:51 am

      No I don’t find you need to as the shortbread mixture will have a lot of butter in it which will release. As long as you are using a non stick pan it will be fine. Allow the shortbread to totally cool first before removing and score whilst hot as this will cut down on the cracking before removing from the tin!

    Hi Claire, thank you, this is amazing! Any suggestion to make this Dairy Free?

    • November 28, 2018 / 7:54 am

      i have not tried to make this dairy free yet but i would imagine try to use a hard dairy free margarine/butter alternative like hard stork and maybe a bit of trex possibly to give it a bit of shortness if needed. when i get round to trying this i will let you know or if anyone trys it please let me know!

    Do you think this would work to cut into shapes and use as sugar cookies?

    • December 3, 2018 / 7:12 pm

      You could do this once it’s cooked and cooling down and firm enough but not totally cool as would be to brittle. Would be a lot of wastage though. I think there could be a better recipe though to be honest were you didn’t get so much wastage if I’m honest.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Really rarely will i encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you may have hit the nail to the head. Your concept is outstanding; the thing is something too few consumers are speaking intelligently about. We are very happy i always stumbled across this in my seek out something in regards to this.
