Almond-Coconut Shortbread – Vegan

Almond-Coconut Shortbread

Almond-Coconut Shortbread

This really is one of the best cookies I have ever made!!  I was having lunch with a friend and wanted to make cookies for dessert. He loves shortbread, so I knew what cookie to make. I needed to change them though, to make them dairy free.  Rather than using butter, I used a combination of almond butter and coconut oil to replace the butter. They came out just right, with the crumbly, dry texture of a traditional shortbread and the added flavor of the almond butter, coconut and cinnamon. I could see adding some finely chopped almonds the next time I make them.
