I love shortbread. How close to texture of traditional shortbread does this come?

Pretty close, I used an old HC recipe of mine to model it after.

I don't think it would work without the resistant wheat starch though.

How important is the powdered Erythritol? Can you use reg? Powdered would be more volume though, right?
Thanks,
Bette

Bette, if you start subbing granular for powdered here you would need half as much but would also need something to dampen the cooling effect on the E.

Thanks, Kevin. I have the pwd, just wondered if it was necessary. In fact, I just purchased another bag with my last Netrition order. Another question, does Inulin dampen the cooling effect of the Erythritol? (Very probably I will use your recipe as written, just curious.)

Thanks, Kevin

I made these lovely little cookies this afternoon. SO easy! DH really liked them and said they'd be terrific with a cup of coffee. I did come up with - inadvertently - one little tweak that I'll probably extend next time. I was about a tablespoon and a half short of the butter required but I had some homemade ghee in the refrigerator. So I just made up the difference with that. It's very subtle, but the ghee gave a hint of a rich nuttiness. Like I said, I'll up it - probably by half - next time.

For those of you wondering, ghee is Indian-style clarified butter. It cooks longer than just plain clarified butter so it develops a very tempting and unforgettable aroma and flavor. It's great drizzled onto otherwise plain foods. It's very simple to do and I'm sure you could easliy find a recipe online. I use unsalted butter, make a good-sized batch, and freeze in 1-cup containers. Don't bother with commercially bottled ghee; it's expensive and doesn't have the right flavor.

Sorry for the long post. And, thanks to Kevin for another sure winner!

Ginny

Hi Kevin,

LOVE your recipes!!! In this statement, you said you would need something to dampen the E..I only have the granular kind so what would I use along with that for this recipe?

Mallory, in this case, if I were using granular I would use about half as much but since it would be such a small amount, I believe that the amount of not/sugar that is in the flour mix would control the cooling effect.

Bumping!

I saw on FoodTV a savory shortbread made with blue cheese and walnuts.

Ever think of adapting as an appetiser for the holiday?

Barefoot Contessa, I think.

Will post recipe should I be able to find.
