Gluten Free Christmas Shortbread

This is a traditional shortbread enjoyed by my family during Christmas. To avoid biscuits that are too crumbly and easily broken it is best not to roll the pastry too thin. The key to this simple recipe is good quality butter. You can easily double the recipe to make a larger quantity.

Gluten Free Christmas Shortbread

Ingredients:

1 cup gluten free plain flour

2 tablespoons rice flour

1/4 cup castor sugar

Pinch salt

125g butter

 

Steps:

Cream the butter and sugar in a food processor until well combined taking care not to let the butter ‘oil’. Sift the flour, salt and rice flour and gradually add to butter and sugar until the dough starts to come together. Place the dough on a piece of plastic wrap lightly dusted with GF flour and using hands gently shape into a disc.

Cover the dough with the plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Place the dough on a piece of plastic wrap and cover with baking paper to prevent sticking to rolling pin. Roll out to a thickness of 1.5-2 cm and cut into desired shapes with biscuit cutters. Place onto baking trays covered with baking paper and bake in oven at 150C for 15-20 mins or until slightly coloured. The time required will vary depending on the size and shape of the shortbread. Allow to cool slightly on the tray. Store in an airtight container.
