Hello fancy little ladies!
I’m super excited about my first post on FLT!!
My name is Ashley & I blog at Bow+Arrow Art about life, family, creativity & gluten free/vegan baking 🙂
I’m allergic to gluten & dairy but I LOVE love to bake so I just make my own recipes and post them for my friends (you).
If we haven’t met yet, definitely say hi. I would love to meet you.
Anyway, on to the good part… cookies!
I even made this batch with star cookie cutters to go with the theme.
Fancy, I know 🙂
My fabulous shortbread recipe strongly resembles this one here.
She did a wonderful job & I barely edited a thing.
I just swapped the butter for Earth Balance vegan butter & the egg for vegan cream cheese and voila!
Holiday cookie perfection 🙂
Ok, ready to bake!?
Gluten Free & Vegan Shortbread Cookies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) Earth Balance vegan butter (room temp)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 TBSP vegan cream cheese (Tofutti is great)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups gluten free flour (this one works very well for me)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp xanthan gum
There you have it.
“The best shortbread cookies ever.” According to my #1 fan/husband (who happens to have no problems with regular cookies but prefers these just the same.)
PS if you’re having trouble finding a good vegan Royal Icing recipe, try this one.
It’s my fave 🙂
Happy Happy Christmas to you & yours from me & mine.
Ashley is a wife, mama, baker, blogger, hugger, & creative soul. She desires to be an encouragement to those around her & to help other mamas find their worth in Him!
