  • Place almond flour, brown rice flour, sorghum flour, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, ginger, and salt together in a large resealable bag; seal and shake well to combine.

  • Mix butter and flour mixture together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until well combined.

  • Roll dough into walnut-size balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets; flatten balls slightly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, about 27 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

Dough can also be pressed it into an 8-inch square pan, then cut it into squares (about 1-inch x2-inch) after baking.

Quite a nice recipe. This particular mix of flours works perfectly for a true shortbread texture. When mixing this up the spices seem like they will be overpowering but it is not so. The outcome is a delicately spiced buttery cookie. Watch the time though mine were ready in about 20 minutes. A half recipe gave me 16 cookies-each weighing 20 grams before baking. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I have not tried it and it sounds tasty but traditional Scottish shortbread does not have any of the spices this recipe calls for. I understand the change in flours due to being gluten-free but with the other additions it is not "traditional." Read More
