Gluten Free Vegan Shortcrust Pastry or Shortbread Dough

Gluten-Free Vegan Shortcrust Pastry

  • Author: Nele Liivlaid
  • Total Time: 33 minutes
  • Yield: 10 cookies 1x


Here’s a gluten free vegan shortcrust pastry (shortbread dough) that is made of only wholesome ingredients. So, no vegan butter or margarine! Furthermore, you’ll need merely 4 ingredients, one bowl and less than 10 minutes of your time.




  1. First, scoop peanut butter (at room temperature) into a bowl.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients (you may sift the flour, but it’s not mandatory) and mix the dough together until you have a nice ball. Start with a spoon and finish with your hands.
  3. If you want, bake savoury shortbread cookies, crackers or form bread sticks (grissini). You may also add some dried herbs/spices such as rosemary, oregano, thyme, cumin, caraway, and basil. Bake thick cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper at 180°C (350°F) for 25 minutes until light golden.


One cookie has 3 GL points.
