These soft Vanilla Shortbread Cookies (AIP/Paleo) are fragrant with vanilla and honey. Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and no processed sugar!
Every year about this time, young girls in green dresses go door-to-door, selling their delicious cookies – and those of us on a healing diet weep. 😭 I mean, those cookies are sooooo goooood. I’ve been known to buy boxes of cookies, then give them to my family. And I’ve even been known to snitch some of them too, and that’s no bueno.
One kind they have that I just love is shortbread cookies. So simple. So addictive. You know I just had to make some for us! And it seemed right to make them with a good hit of vanilla.
About that vanilla…
My preferred brand of vanilla is Singing Dog. And guess what??? They’ve heard those of us with food sensitivities, and are creating an allergy-friendly recipe page on their site, partially populated by yours truly! Woo hoo!!!
When they asked me to create some recipes for them, I was totally on board. I love a creative challenge, and creating recipes in which vanilla is a major player was just that.
They sent me some things to try, including their new double strength vanilla extract. It was love at first sniff! In addition to having a heavenly fragrance, it allows us to get full vanilla flavor without disrupting the balance of liquid to dry ingredients.
I hope you will try it. For baking, it’s a game changer!
As for those cute little troopers selling their cookies, support them, by all means! Share the cookies with your family, then make yourself some that won’t derail your diet. (I have a version of the mint kind that I call Minty Thins. You can give those a try, too!)
Happy baking everybody! As usual, I am wishing you great love, and deep healing.
P.S. Remember, if you want a VERY simple way to bake cookies, you can always get cookies mixes (they’re AIP friendly!) from my friends at Eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. I’ve tried all three kinds, and they have NAILED it! Click here to check them out!
