25 Days of Grain Free Christmas Cookies: Traditional Shortbread Cookies






  1. Leave your organic butter out to come to room temp, you can also take the maple syrup out and measure a bit before hand so it is not cold either. Cream all 3 ingredients together, no need for a mixer, a good old spoon will work. I like to make the cookies fairly small, about one tablespoon.
  2. You can either press it out and use cookies cutters, or use a cookie scoop then roll and flatten. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. I like to use a baking stone for almost all cookies. If you don't have a stone use parchment paper on top of your cookie sheet.
  3. Let cool for a couple minutes before you remove them from the sheet.


These are actually a little easier to shape, but they are also more delicate. And a little crumbly if you don't let them cool off before removing from your baking stone.
