Shortbread Cookies With A Twist
Typical ingredients in shortbread -- a type of biscuit or cookie -- include two parts butter, giving it a fairly high fat content, along with wheat or oatmeal flour. For people who cannot eat foods that contain gluten, shortbread doesn’t always make the cut.
Enter Elana Amsterdam and her rosemary hazelnut shortbread cookies. Not only are these cookies gluten-free, they're lower in fat than typical shortbread cookies, too.
Herbs as an ingredient in a cookie recipe may be a bit out of the ordinary for some, but if you're the adventurous type, try these cookies. Elana's cookbook, The Gluten-free Almond Flour Cookbook, is filled with dishes to serve for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Not too sweet, these cookies make the perfect pairing with a cup of tea. Check out Elana's website where you can read more about her cookbooks.
Gluten can be found in many different foods and products, from ketchup to soy sauce to candy and seasonings. While SheKnows.com tries to ensure these recipes are gluten-free, carefully read the ingredient labels of all food and food products you use for these recipes to ensure they are also gluten free.
