not terrible, not great
I was fairly disappointed with these, having come to expect a lot from BRM (tho I find it interesting how variable the reviews are). I made them exactly as indicated on the directions, using a good DF butter sub. They came out ok: flavor was not bad, very mildly buttery/sweet. Texture was merely adequate very crumbly, mouth feel rather dry & a bit 'sandy' (as is usual with rice flower, as if you Review by maxlet / (Posted on 9/2/2014)

Had to add more water than the package said to add...but other than that they came out perfect!!!!!! Review by not a cookie ba / (Posted on 2/2/2014)
Excellent product
I made these for a Christmas Eve Open House where many who attended have dairy, soy and gluten allergies. Just substituted the appropriate "butter" and they made up just great. I am wondering if they would work in the cookie press if I added a bit more liquid? Many thanks for this great product. Review by HiJinx / (Posted on 1/5/2013)

I'm gluten sensitive and these cookie don't make me feel like I'am.|In addition, they are healthier then your typical cookie, ever more amazing!|MMMM! Review by Gluten Men / (Posted on 11/29/2012)
Best shortbread for GFs I've found
Cut @ 2" and get about 45 cookies - ices well after full cool-down baked more evenly @400 degr.F (Houston area)for a slightly shorter time. Very tasty - loved 'em! Review by Dianadivine / (Posted on 11/7/2011)
Better than my homemade
I made shortbread bars. However, I did need to add 2 Tablespoons more water than the instructions called for. Once that was added, the dough was flexable and easy to use. Review by ljwillingham / (Posted on 8/7/2011)
tasty but dough is difficult to work wit
I ended up just using this mix to make shortbread bars. If I had more time and I didn't have little toddlers nipping at my heals for cookies, I would have taken the time to roll them out and make cookies. I just used a cookie sheet covered with parchment and flattened out the dough. These would be great with finely chopped pecans! Review by Domino / (Posted on 7/26/2011)
Versatile and Delish!
For versatility, I divided the dough into 3 parts and made the following: 1) thumbprint cookies with raspberry jam 2) round cookies drizzled with dark chocolate 3) round cookies with finely chopped pecans mixed into the dough. The assortment looked great on the serving platter.||I found massaging the dough for a minute or 2, as suggested by the directions, made a big difference. I made them smal Review by Kaylyn / (Posted on 7/13/2011)
This is a favorite cookie.
Roll them in sugar before baking or frost with a powder sugar frosting.|They are a favorite! Review by LuLu / (Posted on 5/5/2011)
Not bad, but difficult!
Not easy to work with. Ended up adding small amounts of water (sprinkling with fingers) into mix until it just came together. Flavor was ok- beany flavored at first, then the shortbread taste came through. Good with a cold glass of milk (if you can drink it!) Review by psgordon66 / (Posted on 4/26/2011)
Great as a Pie Crust, too!
I used half the shortbread cookie mix as a pie crust for a lemon blueberry cheesecake. It was delicious and everyone loved it. I substituted a little half and half for the water, and olive oil for half the butter. The taste was still awesome.||The next time, I'll add more butter/olive oil mixture and increase the half and half to see if it turns out less crumbly. ||The cookies are delicious, too, Review by Jeriden / (Posted on 2/21/2011)
Delicious cookies!
These cookies are excellent, especially if you put a little cream cheese icing on top. My non-GF family members also loved them. They were a little difficult to make, because the dough is so dry, it's hard to keep it together, but it's definitely worth the effort. Maybe next time I'll add a little milk. But they are definitely as good as any shortbread cookie I've ever eaten. Maybe better! Review by Sandra the runn / (Posted on 2/2/2011)
Best decorated cookies
I have family that eat gluten free. I baked these for a family Christmas party. I cut in circles with a glass and decorated with white icing.My 4 year old grandson could not get enough of them!|They were easy to make and tasted great! Review by Grandm Jeanne / (Posted on 12/31/2010)
delicious with finely chopped pecans
I added finely chopped pecans to the mix and this made a most delicious pecan cookie, similar to the wedding cookies I love. We recently turned our kitchen gf when one of my kids was diagnosed with celiac. Every time we find a recipe like this we are so happy. These cookies disappeared so quickly, even though there was only one person with celiac in the room. By any standard (gf or not) these sho Review by Jen the baker / (Posted on 11/21/2010)
A great jumping off point for creativity
I was having my mom and aunts to coffee and I needed to be sure to have gluten free treats for 2 of my aunts. I purchased a gluten free spice cake mix and doctored it up with canned pumpkin, but rather than use frosting, I bought the Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Shortbread Cookie Mix. I melted half a cup of butter and added it to 1 1/2 cups of the cookie mix along with 1/4 c dark brown sugar, cinnam Review by robinm / (Posted on 10/19/2010)
The tastiest gluten free cookies. I made them and shared with the family, no one made any faces at them being gluten free, and my only regret is that I didn't buy more while in the States. Review by glutus1 / (Posted on 9/19/2010)
Shortbread Cookie Mix
I made this product and added some cocoa and extra sugar. I baked it in shortbread pans and when it was cooled I sliced it and froze it. When I feel like a treat, I put a piece of the shortbread in a dish with hot fudge and warm it in the microwave then I add ice cream and whatever toppings my husband and I want, e.g., toasted nuts, whipped cream, etc. Very delicious and just enough to satisfy Review by Georgie / (Posted on 7/4/2010)
This is a really ...
This is a really delicious product. My husband loves shortbread cookies but I can't have the gluten, so I tried this and it didn't disappoint. I added a small amount of milk because it was so dry when mixed up. This did not seem to affect the quality of the cookies but helped to hold them together for rolling out.
