Hello everyone, I’ve been in the kitchen creating a new baking recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Shortbread Cookie Bars. I make shortbread quite a bit that wanted to experiment with the recipe a little and turn them into cookie bars. I was a little short on dairy free dark chocolate chips so also added in some dairy free white chocolate chunks as well. A lot of my baking projects seem to turn out like this – just based on what I have in the store cupboard.
I’m having a little think about some new gluten and dairy free Easter recipes to share. As Easter baking always involves a lot of chocolate I need to have a think about good dairy free alternatives. I have an idea brewing and will keep you posted if it works out well. If you have any ideas please let me know.
