Gluten-Free Almond Flour Shortbread Cookies

If you've never baked gluten free, these cookies are a great treat to help you get your feet wet. The dough is easily stirred together by hand in just a couple of minutes, and guarantees a tender, crisp, buttery cookie.

Prep time


Cook time

8 to 10minutes




  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or prepared an ungreased cookie sheet.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl until a cohesive dough forms.
  3. Scoop 1" balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet; a teaspoon cookie scoop works well here. Arrange the balls of dough about 1 1/2" to 2" apart.
  4. Use a fork to flatten each cookie to about 1/4" thick, making a crosshatch design.
