Too Soft

Does not taste like butter
Way too soft
Taste like more of a soft bread

- Grace

Shortbread cookies

Wonderfully soft texture and nice flavor. Will definitely be ordering again.

- Katie

Not crisp

I definitely was expecting a crispy shortbread. The soft texture is not ideal, but they were buttery and had a pretty good taste. That said, I wont buy them again; plenty of other stuff to try and treats that I'm familiar with that are way better.

- James

Nice after dinner cookie

Very rich taste.

- Susan

Very tasty

Very tasty and indulgent. However, these really aren't very cookie-like as they are not the least bit crisp! They are more like dense little cakes. And they are 110 calories each, so if you're on a calorie-restrictive diet, plan ahead because you're going to want more than one!

- Barbara

Did not like these

This shortbread had neither a nice texture nor a yummy taste. Fell way flat on my scale!

- Margarete


loved these. soft and yummy!

- karen


I was not a fan of the taste or texture of these.

- Shelly

Not traditional shortbread

These are soft, therefore not traditional shortbread. Flavor is off too. *will not repurchase

- Wendy


The flavor is awesome.

- Karen


These cookies are absolutely delicious! They melt in your mouth! Great with tea/coffee or milk.

- Linette

Shortbread Cookies

Didn't like them. Taste like artificial butter.

- Pamela

Not my thing

I love shortbread or butter cookies. These were not for me. Pasty unpleasant taste. couldn't bring myself to even "share them with my staff" Never again

- Lisa

Soft and good

This cookies were really good. A little crumbly but the taste was good.

- Joi


This is our favorite shortbread cookie. I appreciate the clean ingredients, they're soft and just sweet enough. We always keep these in our home.

- Mad

Pamelas Shortbread cookies

Cookies were too soggy for shortbread which should be firm and crisp. Maybe due to gluten free. I won't be purchasing again.

- Robert

Wanted to love them... but cant

I was hoping these would be an amazing somewhat healthier treat. However, they were not what I was expecting. I was hoping for a more traditional firm, almost crunchy shortbread texture. These are awfully soft and have a sort of floury mouth feel. Not the crunchy buttery shortbread I was expecting. That said they have a nice slightly but not too sweet flavor. Not something I think I will order again, but if you like soft lightly sweet not too buttery cookies they might be for you.

- Kate

A Great Cookie

I love these Shortbread Cookies. They're sweet, but not too sweet. A great accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee.

- Lee

My fav!!

I love these cookies! They are absolutely delicious!

- Jessica

Shortbread cookies

Yummy and soft!

- Haley

Not quite what I expected

These had a decent taste, but they are a bit on the dry side ... some of this is the avoidance of gluten I imagine. I don't know if there is another way around this that also creates a cookie that hangs together better without undercutting the portion of the taste that depends upon texture.

- David


These were soft and had a rich buttery flavor. I thought these were very tasty gluten-free shortbread cookies.

- Carli

Pretty Meh.....

These cookies are very pretty, and thick. But they are also so VERY soft and crumbly. Real shortbread has some substance to it (not hard, certainly but not almost mushy like these are). They taste good initially but there's an aftertaste I can't quite identify that rather nullified the overall decent impression of taste/mouthfeel. If you LIKE very soft cookies you may not find the softness off-putting. The aftertaste was the deal-killer for me though.

I'll keep looking for a good gluten-free shortbread cookie. These aren't it.

- Lila

Rich, buttery cookies

I love shortbread, have since I was a kid. I used to eat this British one that my mom bought, but I forgot the name. But this is the closest I've had to that shortbread that's 100% healthy. GF shortbread without processed sugar that tastes good? Yep, and it has no egg either. Amazing to think how they get that flaky crispness from all natural ingredients, but if you want a great organic shortbread with no refined sugar, this is the one for you.

- Carla Powers

Christmas Gift

I really like these butter shortbread cookies. The light agave flavor is perfect for these cookies. I see these cookies sold a lot during this time of year, but being gluten free, I honestly like these cookies better-plus they are way cheaper made at home with this mix!
These butter shortbread cookies would make the perfect party food or even Christmas gift for friends and family. They would also taste great brought to work for the company party or to set on the desk for a quick snack now and then. Over all, these cookies are super easy to make and taste great. I would eat them year round!
