Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla

2 1/4 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice  

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla

1 to 2 teaspoons water

Decorations

Decorator sugar, if desired

 

 *Substitute 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until mixture forms a dough.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into 6x1 1/2-inch square log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife; place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla in bowl; stir in enough water for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies; let stand until glaze is set. Sprinkle with decorator sugar, if desired.

Fantastic shortbread! I had to add a bit more water to the glaze but use your judgement. I made full recipe and baked half and saved the other half for closer to the holidays. I all didn't have allspice, it's fine if you add a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg.
