Pin Paleo Whipped Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies
YOU. GUYS. This is a MELT in your MOUTH shortbread cookies recipe.
No “ifs.” No “ands.” NO “BUTS.”
Just pure, light-as-air, WHIPPY and BUTTERY deliciousness for your shortbread-loving SOULS.
I don’t know what it is about shortbread cookies, but they are my ULTIMATE favorite. I can easily have just 1 of a cutesty decorated gluten free chewy sugar cookie or one healthy ginger snap. But, stick a plate of whipped shortbread cookies in front of my eyeballs?
INHALE. EXHALE. THEY’RE ALL GONE.
Poof. JUST LIKE THAT.
I think the reason that I love gluten free shortbread cookies is because the classic recipe is just stupid-simple-idiot proof.
Thing you need to make shortbread cookies 101:
You only need THREE simple ingredients if you’re going to make the classic holiday cookie a real thing in your real-person-cookie-baking life:
BOOM! Pantry essential ingredients that you PROBABLY already have. Whiiiich means you could be eating cookies in only a FEW MINUTES if you get up RIGHT NOW. <– Hold up though, you don’t know what to do with those 3 ingredients. YET.
How to make shortbread cookies 101:
Step 1. Whip the butter and sugar until SUPPPPER light in color and supremely fluffy and basically perfect. Trust me, you’ll know when you get there.
Step 2: Mix in the flour. Resist the urge to eat all the dough because you KNOW that something that is just butter and sugar has to be NEXT LEVEL delicious
Step 3. BAKE.
That’s the jist of it. EXCEPT, these are paleo WHIPPED gluten free shortbread cookies. IMO, this is the only kind of cookie to eat ever because the light and melty factor? OFF THE CHARTS.
The secret to making melt in your mouth shortbread cookies is USUALLY cornstarch. It’s so light and delicate that it gives your baked good those SAME addictive qualities.
Except, in usual Taylor fashion, I decided to mix up this recipe for gluten free shortbread cookies and give “grain free” a go and attempt to swap in tapioca starch to make whipped shortbread cookies WITHOUT cornstarch.
Or flour. HI almond flour shortbread cookies!
OR actual butter. Ghee, I love that you are lactose-free. Will you marry me?
And Z-E-R-O SUGAR.
We are making our own POWDERED monkfruit, which is SO much easier than it sounds. You just have to GRIND IT up for AWHILE in a food processor. Side note: be patient with it, you’re gonna think it’s going nowhere and then – suddenly – it’s powdery-perfect!
Sugar free powdered sugar is a real thing that exists on this planet we call Earth and you are welcome for the discovery. Also sugar free shortbread cookies are a thing.
You are welcome, TIMES TWO.
Swirls of nutty almond extract dance around each and every melty bite of these paleo whipped gluten free shortbread cookies, as it combines with almond flour to create a DOUBLE dose of almond flavor profiles and coats your tongue in rich, velvety-smooth, LUSCIOUS buttery goodness.
Then just like MAGIC, the cookie is gone. Melting into your VERY cookie loving SOUL.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a serious feeling that the true meaning of Christmas is not the giving of gifts to loved ones out of the goodness of your heart.
I’m voting for “giving yourself the gift of cookies out of the HUNGRINESS of your belly.”
