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.
