Gluten-free Honey Lavender Shortbread (Gluten-Free)

The finished honey lavender shortbread. Photo: CC-Dr. MuerteSince I fell in love with the homemade lavender biscotti from my favorite coffee shop in San Francisco, I’ve been trying to incorporate this distant cousin of mint into my cooking. Lavender is easily found in specialty food stores or online, and a little goes a long way. This recipe for shortbread makes about 30 delectable cookies. It’s important to chill the dough; it will be firm and easier to work with.

Ingredients:
1½ cups almond meal flour, plus extra for dusting
¼ cup cornstarch
2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers, chopped
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup sugar
8 tablespoons butter, cut into 1-tablespoon pieces
½ teaspoon salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a medium bowl, combine honey, sugar, and butter with a mixer or spoon.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, lavender and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir until you have soft dough.

Transfer dough to a dusted cutting board, roll into a ball and wrap in plastic. Chill for 30 minutes.

Roll out chilled dough about ¼-inch thick and score into rectangles. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool to room temperature and serve.

You may find these interesting, they're from Professor Marios Hadjivassiliou, a leading expert on gluten ataxia: http://www.acnr.co.uk/pdfs/volume2issue6/v2i6reviewart2.pdf Best of luck helping your daughter

Yep. The one that is most relevant I think is the post by Backtalk. Backtalk went back on gluten and have to a colostomy done on an emergency basis. Not fun. She regretted ignoring the gluten-free diet.

Welcome Lochella Hopefully you can draw some comfort from finally having an answer and thus starting the path to good health. Healing is going to come from your own body as you progress on the gluten free diet and it stops fighting itself and starts repairing that damage. You're still in the very early days and it's not an instant process sadly. 6 months is the usual figure bandied around for seeing significant improvement, although hopefully you'll get some signs of improvement much quicker than that. The single best thing you can do is to eat good simple whole foods and make sure absolutely no gluten gets into your diet. There's some tips here: With stomach pains peppermint tea is my go to drink. Avoiding caffeine seems to help as well as its rough on digestion at the best of times. This may be a time to ease up on alcohol as well and consider dropping dairy, many find they're lactose intolerant but this can correct itself in time. You will find lots of good info, advice and support here, I hope the community is of help to you as it was to me. Best of luck!

I recently got diagnosed with Celiac disease I must of had it my whole life. I'm 35 I've always had severe stomach problems, in and out of hospitals and misdiagnosed until now. My small intestine is severely damaged I'm now waiting to see a dietitian and my specialist wants to see me again in 2 weeks. How do some of you deal with the pain of the healing process and what helps you? I'm in so much pain?
