Gluten Free Melt-In-Your-Mouth Shortbread
55 mins (prep 15, cooking 40)
4 ingredients
24 servings
Adapted from The Food Allergy Cookbook Found this for my friends who need gluten free dessert! I'm guessing at the servings because none was stated. This is an updated review by DreamoBway. She has an excellent other use for this dough --- UPDATE from DreamoBway: "I tried making these in mini muffin tins, hollowed out a little well, and filled them with pecan tassy filling. I also upped the cooking temp to 350 and they browned beautifully. It was a successful experiment! UPDATE(12/15/09) new use for cookies from ukichix -" I think this would work well as a GF crumb crust... bake 1 large cookie in a 8x8 pan, then "crumb" it up, add some cornflake crumbs and prepare a crumb base. I will try and repost the results! revision: pressed the entire recipe into a 9x13 pan and baked for 30 mins (until golden on the edges), let cool - and "crumbed". Used 1/2 of these crumbs and 1/2 cornflake crumbs, with some sugar and melted butter to prepare a GF like Graham Cracker Crust with was sweet and soft. Perfect for Crumb Crust desserts."
