Riesling Biscuits

A while back, I posted a recipe for Cabernet Cookies, using Cabernet Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. I thought they turned out very well –not too sweet, full of antioxidants and rich, dark chocolate; basically, my family was hooked.

Recently, I was reviewing the comments for that post and saw this one that Jenné from sweetpotatosoul.blogspot.com left.  In it she mentioned making some cookies with grapeseed flour, so I hopped over to her blog and to take a peak. Jenne had a delicious looking recipe for Riesling Shortbread, which I decided to attempt to make gluten free.

Here it is.

You can make little designs on the biscuit –I used a butter knife and was happy with how they turned out.  Also, I would recommend serving these gluten free Riesling Biscuits with just a smidge of goat cheese –haven’t tried it myself, though I think it would be wonderfully simple, yet sophisticated.

  1. Dear Elana,
    It seems like it’s been forever since you sent out an email and I am beginning to worry about you. Are you doing okay00? I hope you are happy and healthy and everyone in your family is well and happy. Can you send out an email to us?
    Thank you in advance…

  2. hello, i was wondering if it’s acceptable to use stevia extract instead of agave nectar. Having problems with candida (i’m21 yrs old) i can’t eat any sugar except stevia apparently, nor gluten. Kicking the sugar addiction is one of the hardest things i had to do and I was wondering if you know any cookie recipes that could ease my ‘torture’


  3. Elana,
    I just bought the Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook. While the recipes look great, as a diabetic I need to know the nutritional information for the recipes. Where can I get that information?
