Sugar free shortbread

Today I will be sharing a recipe that is so simple you could make it blindfolded and it has basic ingredients and best of all is sugar-free! 

I don't like using the chemical nasties that are on offer for sugar substitutes so I keep my ingredients all natural as I love my children and want them to thrive on the good wholesome stuff. 

This morning I found my local supermarket a great little cookie stamper for £2 (ASDA) how could I resist making biscuits? 

Sugar-Free Christmas Biscuits

What you need: 

400g plain flour 
350g room temp proper butter (not chemical margarine)
4tbsp Meridian date syrup (Meridian adds no sugars or nasties)
2 tbsp Stevia (Natural Stevia leaf sweetener)

Mix the butter and sugar substitute ingredients together with a hand blender or simply using elbow power, when all mixed in well then add the flour. Using your hands bind the mix together into a dough ball. Roll out using a big fat rolling pin and cut out the biscuit shapes using a cutter or simply an upside down cup.

Lay the biscuits onto a sheet of greaseproof papered baking tray. Using your stamper press down firm on each biscuit then place the tray into the fridge to cool for 15mins.

After the 15 mins bake them in a moderate oven. (180/Gas mark 4)

They are soft when they first come out of the oven but once cooled they form a nice shortbread texture.

Hope your little ones and adults love them. A nice glass of cold milk works wonderfully.

Love, laughter and gentle hugs
