Vegan Shortbread Cookies with Balsamic Reduction are gluten free shortbread cookies that are mixed with cranberries, pistachios and a drizzle of balsamic reduction! They’re a healthy, vegan and paleo cookie for Christmas!
Thick, syrupy balsamic reduction. Like made from VINEGAR. On a cookie. In front of you, on THE SCREEN.
Well, peeps. One can only describe these buttery-but-OH-SNAP-no-butter soft and melty little bites of VEGAN ANDANDAND PALEO cookie goodness as the ULTIMATE of savory-sweet PERFECTION. Not even one OUNCE of exaggeration guys. I did not think that my inner cookie-monster-esque heart would SING ballads after tasting VINEGAR on top of a COOKIE.
Commence delicious overload in 3…2…1..GOGOGOGOGO.
BUT THEN. You’ll stir in the coconut flour, (or make these gluten free almond flour shortbread cookies if you prefer almond flour) feeling pretty proud of the delicious work you’re doing….only to have it turn from proud –> WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH MY LIFE, when the dough is SUPER soft and totally NOT ROLLABLE AT ALL.
Calm down Martha Stewart. This is NORMAL. Just scrape that dough onto some saran wrap, wrap it into a flat disc and chill it for 30 MINUTES.
BUT ONLY if you get up RIGHT NOW and continue where we left off:
