Gluten-Free Vegan Shortbread Cookies

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"A very nice vegan cookie that you would not know is not made with real butter. I didn't know if this would work with the changes I made, but they turned out very good. They didn't fall apart or crumble; they held their shape very nicely."
