Gluten Free Lavender Shortbread Cookies | Namaste Foods Brown Rice Flour Recipe

One of the awesome products sent to me from Namaste Foods was a bag of GF Brown Rice Flour.  Of course being a gluten free household brown rice flour is a pantry staple.  Now I usually use brown rice flour as part of my gluten free all purpose flour mix; since Namaste Foods was kind enough to send me this package I thought I would develope a recipe using it as as the main ingredient 🙂

Before the whole celiac thing my favorite cookie of all time was classic english shortbread.  This gluten free version is a take on my family recipe.  Not quite as soft it holds up well to a topping.  See below for some ideas!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 F
  2. Cream together sugar, butter and lavender flowers until light and fluffy (depending on the coarseness of your organic sugar it may not fluff; don't worry the recipe still works out great)
  3. Add in brown rice flour and tapioca starch. Mix until combined.
  4. I pressed my dough into a madeleine cookie pan to form shells that will hold toppings. Or You can roll 1.5 inch balls of cookie dough then pressed flat with a fork.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the bottoms are a light golden brown. Cool in pan for 10-20 minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
