Gluten free - can be dairy free - refined sugar free - nut free - egg free.
These cookies are an absolute dream for gluten free eaters! They are melt-in-your-mouth wonderful, totally versatile and so easy to make. I based these on a recipe I found in one of my rather generic Gluten Free cook books, but the original recipe was seriously awful - really boring and incredibly dry and crumbly. Makes me wonder if some of these recipes actually get tested. Anyway...after a bit of experimenting, I believe I've come up with a far superior product, which you really want to go and make as soon as possible!!
You can do so much with this dough. They make great plain shortbread just as they are ; you can also add chocolate for divine Choc Chip Cookies ; you can cook them with jam in the middle (one of my childhood favourites) ; or sandwich a couple of plain ones with some Cashew Cream or other icing for a "Melting Moments' style cookie. The raw dough also makes fabulous Cookie Dough Ice Cream.
