Gluten Free Shortbread

Here is my recipe for Gluten Free Shortbread.  However this stuff needs to come with a health warning as you cant just have one piece!! I have been known to polish off the lot in a few days – but there is hope… a top tip.. and i suggest you do this!! It does freeze well, so pop some wrapped in between parchment paper and pop in a freezer bag or container and then take out whenever you want.

  • 8 oz Butter
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 4 oz Cornflour
  • 8 oz Plain Gluten Free Flour
  • Pinch of Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 140′ fan, 160 non fan.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until its white and fluffy.
  • Sieve the dry ingredients into a separate bowl and gradually add to the creamed mixture and knead until smooth.
  • Take a baking tin which is 12″ x 8″ and smooth into the tin and smooth the top. Mark into fingers and prick with a fork.
  • Place in a middle shelf for 30 minutes – 40 minutes until it has a light slight golden colour to it.
  • Remove from oven and dredge with caster sugar whilst still hot. Run your knife back along your markings of the fingers you cut carefully with a sharp knife and leave to cool in tin, which will allow this to firm up.
  • Once the shortbread is totally cool, take a small palette knife and ease the shortbread out. Store any shortbread in a airtight container with some kitchen paper. Or you can freeze this in a Tupperware container with parchment paper between.
  • Enjoy!

    Can you tell me do you grease the tin x

      No I don’t find you need to as the shortbread mixture will have a lot of butter in it which will release. As long as you are using a non stick pan it will be fine. Allow the shortbread to totally cool first before removing and score whilst hot as this will cut down on the cracking before removing from the tin!
