Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Shortbread Cookies

Recipe By:King Arthur Flour
“These buttery-rich, crisp shortbread cookies are a great wheat-free alternative to classic shortbread. Without the additional coconut flavor, they have the faint aroma and taste of coconut thanks to coconut flour. With the flavor, you’ll have a cookie with robust coconut taste, perfect for dunking into a pot of chocolate fondue or glass of milk.”

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup King Arthur Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon coconut flavoring, for stronger flavor (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line it with parchment.
  2. Mix all the ingredients, by hand or mixer, until a well-blended, cohesive dough forms; this will take about 2 minutes at medium-low speed in a stand mixer.
  3. Drop the cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet (a teaspoon cookie scoop works well here), leaving 1 inch between them; these cookies won’t spread much when they bake.
  4. Use a fork to flatten each cookie to about 1/4 inch thick, making a cross-hatch design.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8 to 12 minutes, until just browned on the bottom. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet.
