The best shortbread cookies EVER The best shortbread cookies EVER
Number of Servings: 66


    1 lb butter
    1 cup fruit sugar (fructose)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup corn starch
    3 1/2 cups flour + extra flour for rolling


Make butter very soft. It is easier to mix this way. A little tip is to cut butter in small pieces and place in a bowl that is sitting in hot water in the sink. This will melt it so watch that it does not separate. Mix so it does not separate.

Mix butter, salt and fruit sugar. Blend thoroughly. Add cornstarch. Add flour gradually. you may have to knead by hand.
Take one additional cup of flour and add small portions as you mix until dough begins to crack. you may not use all of this last cup.
Roll out 3/8" to 1/2" thick, in squares or cookie cutter.
Cook at 325F for approximately 20 minutes. Watch closely as they are easy to over cook
Take out when they have a golden tint.
Roll in fruit sugar when cool enough to handle. Store in fridge or freezer for best taste.

If you cannot find fruit sugar.....If your recipe calls for fructose (fruit sugar) substitute sugar at a ratio of 3 to 1
You can also use an all natural sweetener like PureVia or Ideal and use 1.5 cups instead of just 1 cup.
