Let’s Bake : Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Recipe

 Gluten-free chocolate chip shortbread

I have been in a bit of a baking frenzy at the moment. I’m a huge sweet-tooth and since my fiancé has had to stop eating gluten, I have desperately been trying to find replacement recipes for some of his favourite food goodies. This shortbread recipe can be adapted for your personal preference so if you don’t fancy chocolate chips, want to try out some nuts or completely go without etc.. go for it!



250g of gluten-free flour

150g of butter

90g of caster sugar

pinch of salt

200g of milk chocolate chips (more of less depending on your preference)

1 tsp of vanilla




Step One

Line a baking tray with baking parchment and pre-heat the oven to 180°C. In a large bowl, combine sifted flour and salt.


Step Two

Add cubed butter and with your hands, rub together the ingredients. Add sugar, vanilla and chocolate chips (or your choice of dry extras). Mix well until all ingredients have combined and created a dough texture.


Step Three

On a large kitchen surface or chopping board, sprinkle flour. Place dough onto the floured surface and roll out to an even thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out desired dough shapes and place onto the baking tray. Spread out evenly.


Step Four

Bake for 10-15 minutes and place onto a cooling rack once they are cooked. One cooled, enjoy and tuck in!

    Yum! I've had a big sweet tooth lately myself. I bought a big bag of mini m&m's for monster cookies, and i ate them all – no cookie! Hah. I love the name of your blog by the way.

      I would've eaten them too. I have no shame! 🙂 Thank you, the name took me awhile to think of but both thimbles and spoons are things my great grandmother use to collect. I like to think she is apart of my blogging journey. x
