Spiced Shortbread Cookies (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Course Dessert
Servings 12 cookies


  • 1 1/2 cup cassava flour
  • 4 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup lard, butter, or palm shortening
  • 6 tbsp apple butter This provides most of the "spice" in this recipe. If you are AIP, ensure you use an apple butter that is compliant. It's really easy to make your own!
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash Himalayan salt


  • Turn oven to 350F and line a pan with parchment paper.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until a crumbly shortbread dough forms that holds its shape when pressed together. I found it easiest to mix by hand.
  • Shape into cookies and arrange on the lined pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes
  • Top with a thin layer of apple butter before serving (optional).
