GLUTEN FREE SHORTBREAD COOKIES

Scottish in origin, shortbread was once only served during Christmas and New Year’s Eve. In its most basic form, the recipe is made with only butter, sugar, vanilla and flour.

The secret to making a good shortbread is to use a high quality butter and pure vanilla extract. My gluten free twist, made with rice flour, will melt in your mouth.
