Shortbread cookies are one of the easiest cookies to make, plus they are perfect for any time of the year! Especially when they are also sugar free. I was actually thinking about how much I love shortbread cookies and that they may be my favorite cookies. But then, I thought well what about chocolate chip cookies? Or chocolate cookies? Or oatmeal cookies? Then I realized that I just love cookies, and all cookies are my favorite cookies! A lot of people seem to think that shortbread is for the holidays, but I strongly believe that this recipe should be enjoyed all year long!

Instructions To Make Shortbread Cookies

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add your butter and sweetener. Beat until creamy – it is easiest to use a stand or hand mixer.
  3. Add in your vanilla and eggs, one at a time until smooth. Gently fold in your almond flour and salt, mix until combined.
  4. Using a large cookie scoop, form 12-15 dough balls and place on your prepared baking sheet. Press each ball down into a cookie shape and create holes in the middle of your cookie with the prongs of a fork.
  5. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely and enjoy!
