Whole Grain Holiday Shortbread

Shortbread is a crumbly, sweet butter cookie that often appears as a winter holiday treat.  It consists of three ingredients: sugar, butter, and flour. 

Our shortbread recipe uses whole oat flour.  This is significant because, unlike all-purpose flour, when you bite into one you immediately get a pleasant sweetness followed by a wonderful nuttiness.  You can’t get that with white flour.

They’re somewhere between flaky and crumbly so they just melt in your mouth.  But they’re also a little bit chewy.  It’s something you have to experience first-hand to totally understand.

We’ll just say they’re delicious and the would make the perfect addition to your holiday cookie plate.

You can dress them up a little by dipping one end of each cookie in chocolate.
