Hazelnut Shortbread recipe

This is a great food gift for that tricky eater – these shortbreads are gluten free and vegan friendly.


  • 280g gluten-free flour
  • 250g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 60g chopped hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp. rice flour or ground almonds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/gas mark 3.

  2. Grease a baking tin.

  3. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract together until fluffy. This means to mix with a wooden spoon.

  4. Mix the flour, hazelnuts and rice flour in a separate bowl.

  5. Add the flour to the creamed mixture until you have a smooth dough.

  6. Flour your work surface and knead well. Roll the mixture out. Press into the baking tin and cut into rough squares.

  7. Bake for 35 minutes and then break into squares once cooked.

These are great with a cup of coffee to contrast with the gentle flavour of the hazelnuts.
