Shortbread Cookies ~ THM, Low Carb, Gluten Free

First let me say this, I am in love with the new THM baking blend.  It is so versatile that its unreal!  It was a little splurge for me to buy it when I did, so I have been very picky as to what I use it for.   By far it has been the best thing for this gluten free mom!

A few days ago, I made a crust using the THM baking blend for a no bake cheesecake.  I feel in love with the crust.
(Who doesn’t love pie crust?!?)

The pie crust kind of tasted like a shortbread cookie to me.  I wanted to recreate all that yumminess in cookie form. 

This recipe is so simple to make.  It takes just a minute or two to mix together in a food processor.  If you don’t own one, no problem!  Just let your butter soften and mix! The best part of this recipe is it only uses 4 ingredients… THM baking blend, THM sweet blend, butter, and vanilla.  After its mixed, just roll and let chill in the fridge for two hours.  Cut and bake.   
* Just a reminder, the THM sweet blend is very sweet.  If you are using your own homemade blend, then you might need to taste the dough and add more if it needs it. *
For a Trim Healthy Mama, these are an S cookie. 
I am sure your whole family will enjoy these simple cookies. 

Shortbread Cookies~ THM, Low Carb, Gluten Free

2 sticks butter (cold)
3 Tablespoons THM sweet blend
2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine all ingredients into your food processor.  Mix until its all combined.  Remove and place on wax paper.  Roll it to form a long tube.  Wrap, and place in fridge for two hours or longer to chill.  After it has chilled, cut slices about a fourth of an inch. (it doesn’t have to be perfect)  Bake on a lined cookie sheet with parchment paper at 350 for 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Allow to completely cool before removing them from the parchment paper. 


  1. Hello! Is a stick of butter 1/2 a cup? I generally buy butter by the pound (2 cups).

  2. 1 stick is half a cup. I have these in my oven now!

  3. Is THM sweet blend the same thing as Gentle Sweet?

  4. Sweet Blend is sweeter than gentle sweet...

  5. Do you have a recipe for the shortbread pie crust?

Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
