  • Shortbread

    I absolutely love shortbread, especially whipped shortbread. BUT - it uses flour... standard wheat flour...

    Does anyone have a variation that uses almond flour, or something such?

    I tried it with almond flour already, but I think the butter was too soft, so they completely collapsed. Also, I think I might have needed more flour...

    Coconut is yucky - tried it and it got very dry, and I don't like the taste.

    Anyone?

    This is a cracker recipe but very shortbread like in texture. I would think you could play with it a little to make it more like a cookie with just a few tweaks.

        How do you feel about tapioca and rice flour? If you combine them with almond flour it should work. I have a gluten free mixture I use to make shortbread (and anything requiring flour) for my son. I combine: 150 grams tapioca flour, 150 grams brown rice four, 200 grams sorghum flour, 200 grams millet and 300 grams white rice four, I mix it all up and store it in a plastic container.

            Another great combination of non-wheat flours is:

            To make 1 cup:

            White rice flour (2/3 cup)
            Potato Starch (1/3 cup minus 2 tbsp)
            Tapioca Starch (2 tbsp)
            1/4 tsp of xanthan gum (optional)

            I also had success with baking with corn flour/corn meal (2/3 cup minus 2 tbsp + 1/3 cup) with 2 tbsp of tapioca. I am thinking of making a golden jelly roll with lemon filling (lemon flesh reduced with sugar or maybe ground dates....) for X-mas - I think it will be very pretty. Obviously it is not an every day recipe or really Primal!
