Parmesan and pine nuts Shortbread (gf)

pinenuts crackers

It was right after I put my daughter for a bedtime,and like any other kid she remembers,that she is hungry,she wants to pee,she is thirsty,right before she has to go to sleep! I’m pretty much sure,I’m not the only one experiencing that every single night. So I made sure,she fell asleep,and decided to drink some wine to calm me down a bit…Yes,ladies and gentlemen, I’m one of those,but I always drink responsibly!

 

As I was pouring some wine in my glass,I felt I was missing something. That poor wine was all alone,without any cheese platter,or grapes! Then the pinterest search began! I was looking for something cheesy,herbaceous and crunchy,and I was lucky enough to find that incredible recipe from Savory Simple. Easy,scrumptious,cheesy and herbaceous shortbread! The addition of the pine nuts gives a beautiful crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 ounces grated Parmesan (grate it yourself for the best flavor)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup  pinenuts
  • 1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon water

Place the butter in the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix on medium-low until becomes creamy.
Add the parmesan, salt, pepper, rosemary and gluten free flour one at a time until evenly combined. At the end,add the pine nuts.
Add 1 tablespoon of water to help bring the dough together.
