The full text of the book published by Hodder and Stoughton, updated.

Ingredients: makes one round of shortbread

8oz / 200g gluten-free fine flour mix

3 oz / 75g granulated sugar

100 ml olive oil


Mix the dry ingredients together. Then mix in the olive oil until a fine mixture or soft dough is produced - this will depend on the what sort of mixer you are using.

Press well into a greased tray to the final thickness required forthe biscuits. It is much easier to make one large shortbread and score itbefore cooking than to make separate biscuits.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until light brown.


Ginger shortbread: add ½ oz or 10 g powdered ginger to the dry ingredients, or add chopped preserved ginger.
