You have to kiss a lot of paleo shortbread cookies to find your prince. I wanted to create an egg free shortbread cookie recipe for the holidays, and I tested this recipe many times, enlisting tasters all along with way with mixed reviews about which version is best. It was a close call between using all coconut flour (wrong mouth feel, I was told), and a mix of coconut and almond flour. I settled on mostly coconut flour with a bit of almond flour mixed in for a moister result.
Although I’m officially burned out on faux shortbread, these are truly melt-in-your-mouth delicious, easy, and quick. You could also dip them in melted dark chocolate for even more deliciousness.
One note: supervise these very carefully while baking. They will very quickly become too brown if you bake them too long.
