Happy Christmas Shortbread Cookies!

Happy Christmas to all! I love these cookies, as they are very similar to ones I had as a child. My mom calls them her "Cameron Christmas Cookies", but these are a little different - most notably the fact that they are free from gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy and animal products!

Happy Christmas Shortbread Cookies!

4 Cups GF Flour Mix
1-3/4 Cups Olive Oil
2 Cups Superfine Sugar
1 Rounded tsp Xanthan Gum
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
300ml Organic Jam (your favorite flavor)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 2 cookie sheets. Mix the flour, sugar and vanilla and slowly add the olive oil until the dough is thick. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and gently form them into long logs, placing 3 on each cookie sheet. form a small trough in each log so that you can spoon the jam in afterwards without it spilling over. Bake the shortbread logs for about 20 minutes, or until mostly solid. Remove from the oven and spoon a small amount of jam in each trough. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes. When still warm, slice into 1 inch thick pieces. For a super luxurious treat, drizzle melted chocolate over them once the cookies have cooled.
I'll have some pictures shortly - if the cookies haven't been devoured!
