Dessert: Earl Grey Shortbread

20 Feb

Wow, I have a lot of recipes to post in the next couple weeks!

This shortbread is actually based on a recipe from my Whole Foods App. It is DELICIOUS. They sell earl grey shortbread in boxes at the store, but this version is homemade, incredibly easy, quick to make, and g&d free! I brought it to my church’s potluck for young adults, and it was well-received.











2 single serving packages of earl grey tea
1/2 c dairy free spread, softened (smart balance light works well)
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 c gluten free flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill g-free all-purpose baking flour)
dash of salt

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a square pan (I used glass and it was great)
2. Mix softened spread and tea in a large bowl until creamy.
3. Mix in sugar, then flour, then salt.
4. Press the dough into the pan so that the thickness is consistent and the top is smoothed out.
5. With a fork, make perforated lines in the dough in your desired size.
6. Bake for about a half hour, until edges are beginning to brown. The bread should break evenly if you use a fork to vertically cut through a perforated line.
7. After cooling, use a fork to separate the cookies along the perforated lines and transfer cookies to a flat surface.
8. Enjoy!
