Easy Gluten-Free Shortbread Bars

The littlest Sugar Pig asked if I could make shortbread to go with the Prickly Pear Lemon Curd. Okay. I love that this only includes 4 ingredients and it's done in less than 30 minutes.

  • 1 C butter, cubed + more for greasing baking dish
  • 1/2 C organic powdered sugar + more for sprinkling
  • 2 C gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 egg
  • Prickly Pear Lemon Curd, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter your baking dish; I used a 9"x13" dish.

In a large mixing bowl, use a pastry cutter to blend the butter into the flour and powdered sugar. Add in the egg and form dough into a ball with your hands.

Press the dough into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with more powdered sugar. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes - or until cookies are pale golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

Cut into squares and serve immediately. Spoon Prickly Pear Lemon Curd over the top, if using.
