Shortbread Cookies

Easy and delicious are two of my favourite words! These cookies are the perfect things to have ready in a jar during the festive season. Serve them to guests or gift them to friends, it’s going to be happily accepted.


280 g all purpose flour

80 g castor sugar

1/4 tsp salt

225 g chopped unsalted butter

1 tsp Vanilla extract

For filling: Jam of choice/ Salted Caramel/ Ganache or any filling of choice


  1. In a food processor add all the ingredients and pulse till the mixture clumps up together.
  2. Once the clumps start forming, dump the mixture into a bowl and form it into a dough ball (Try not to over work the mixture), wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill it for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 175 C and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. On a well floured surface roll out the chilled dough using a rolling pin to about 1/4 inch thickness, using a cookie cutter of your desired size, cut out as many cookies as you can and place them on the cookie sheet. I used a 5 inch round cookie cutter and a heart cookie cutter which was smaller. To make the heart cut outs just cut the heart shape using the heart cookie cutter from half of your round cookies.
  5. You need not bake all the cookies straight away, you can chill the dough or freeze the dough to bake it off later.
  6. When baking, bake the cookies at 175 C for about 15 minutes or till they start to turn slightly golden brown on the sides. Remove the cookies and let them rest on the cookie sheet till they cool down completely, do not try to move them because they will break.
  7. Once the cookies are completely cooled, fill your favourite filling and ENJOYY!

Gluten free FUDGEY chocolate brownies

Everything that a brownie should be, Chocolatey, Fudgey, Intense and Chewy. These are easy to make and super yummy! I won’t write more let’s get straight to the recipe so that you can make these and devour them ASAP!


225 g Melted Bittersweet chocolate (I used 55% dark organic couverture chocolate)

55 g unsalted butter

50 g dark brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

15 g cocoa powder

60 g almond flour

25 g cornflour

3 large eggs


  1. Grease and line an 8×10 inch baking dish. Preheat your oven to 175° C.
  2. In a large bowl, add three eggs and whisk them using a hand held mixer for about 5 minutes or till they increase in volume (about three times)
  3. Once the eggs are whipped add the ‘COOLED’ melted chocolate, salt and vanilla. Sift the dry ingredients and using a spatula or a metal spoon and fold in the ingredients. Do not over mix.
  4. Transfer to the pan and bake for about 30 minutes. You’ll notice when the brownies bake it may puff up in certain areas but don’t worry they will settle down once you remove the brownies from the oven, once the centre is set and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, remove the brownies and let them cool in the pan for at least 1-2 hours.
  5. Top with your favourite toppings and devour!!
