Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies (Gluten-Free)

It’s another Monday, a new day and a fresh start to the week! One of my favorite ways to kick off a new day is by getting up early before Baby E, breathing in the fresh morning air, making myself a cup of coffee and enjoying a few minutes of alone time before I hear that adorable little voice yelling “Momma!” through the monitor. And that little adorable voice, is my other favorite way to kick off the day :)

But just when I thought my cup of morning coffee couldn’t get any better, THESE little cookies came along… Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookies Dipped in Chocolate and Peanuts.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

I like to think of them as faux-biscotti because they taste just like biscotti (but a little softer) and dipping them in my coffee just made my morning that much better. But technically since they aren’t ‘baked twice’ they aren’t considered the real deal. But who is counting?

Gluten-Free Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

These little cookies are about 1.5″X3″ of pure goodness. The soft crumbly cookie, sweet chocolate and crunchy topping are the perfect combo.

These would make a great addition to your morning cup of coffee, served with ice cream or a nice bite size dessert following a dinner party.

Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies (Gluten-Free)
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 36 Cookies
  • Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookie Mix
  • 1 tsp Egg Replacer + 2 Tbsp water (or 1 egg yolk)
  • 1½ Sticks of Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Cup Chopped Nuts
  • 8 Oz. Melting Chocolate
  1. Make the Shortbread Cookies according to the Bob’s Red Mill Package which includes 1½ sticks of butter and 1 large egg yolk (or egg replacer).
  2. Beat or in a food processor combine the ingredients until the dough is crumbly (but will stay together when squeezed between your fingers).
  3. Separate the dough in half.
  4. Form half of the dough into a ball and roll it out onto a clean surface until it is about ¼" thick. Use GF flour to keep it from sticking.
  5. Use a rectangular cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.
  6. Pick up the dough scraps, form a new ball and roll out again.
  7. Repeat process until all of the dough is used.
  8. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes at 375 or until golden brown.
  9. While the cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate in a double broiler and place chopped nuts into a bowl.
  10. Take each cookie and dip it in the chocolate, then into the chopped nuts, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with freezer paper.
  11. When the tray is full, place it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden the chocolate.
  12. Repeat until all cookies have been dipped.

    I love shortbread cookies, and your recipe looks divine! I’ve never thought about nuts on the chocolate–YUM! Wish I had one now. :)

    Those look GREAT!. We used to have a little something like coffee cake or crisp with our coffee every morning until I started outgrowing my jeans. Now we have cut it back to a couple weekend days a month.

    These look soooooo good!! I would probably skip the chocolate and just dunk them plain into my coffee. Chocolate and peanut coating would make these just too dangerous. I would probably eat the whole batch in one sitting then…..
