These shortbread cookies are perfect. Buttery, slightly sweet, and a bit crumbly. Everything I ask for in a shortbread cookie. And shortbread cookies are so easy to make too! These are made with very few ingredients, just sprouted flour, coconut sugar or rapadura, butter (or coconut oil). It’s as simple and as good as that.
When I was making them I remembered shortbread cookies I had eaten when I was pregnant with Elena. I had gone through premature labor and was being kept at the hospital, though my labor had stopped. Living off of hospital food was not my favorite thing and one day my mom had brought up some shortbread cookies for me from Starbucks. There was something in those cookies I craved, and I suspect it was the healthy real butter they contained. And buttery they were! My mom started bringing me some every other day. So when I was making these, I was a little afraid that they wouldn’t be as good. But are they ever! So good.
While these cookies aren’t necessarily a Christmas cookie, they do make a great addition to a cookie platter……or they make a great single cookie! Perhaps with a Pumpkin Latte.
