Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Jam Crumble Cookie Squares

Not all cookies are created equally. In fact, these cookie squares are part crumbly shortbread and part chewy jam-filled thumbprints. But, I’d have to admit that the best part is that you can make them with any filling—your favorite jam or preserves, or even salted dulce de leche, lemon curd or my dairy-free knockoff nutella. I like to make the cookies year-round, swapping in different flavors for each season. My kids like them any way they come out of the oven.

If you’re wondering why I’ve added a bit of baking soda to the recipe, it’s there to give the cookies their golden-brown color. This is especially helpful in butter-free, gluten-free baked goods. If you have any leftover cookies, just store them in an airtight container between sheets of parchment paper or wax paper.

For ingredient substitutions, please see the detailed chart at Gluten-Free 101.

 

Makes: 16
Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 40 minutes


1¼ cups Silvana’s Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
1 cup (3 ounces) blanched sliced almonds
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, vegan butter or shortening, cut into pieces
1 cold large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup blueberry preserves or your favorite preserves or jam

1. Preheat the oven to 350º. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with a 12-inch-long sheet of foil. Using a food processor, mix the flour, almonds, sugar, baking soda and salt until the nuts are finely ground. Add the butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Beat together the egg and vanilla; drizzle over the dough mixture. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and knead with your fingertips until clumpy.
2. Transfer two-thirds of the dough to the pan and press into the bottom to form an even layer. Spread the preserves on top. Dot the top with the remaining dough in clumps.
3. Bake until the edges are lightly golden, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely. Turn out of the pan, remove the foil and cut into squares.

5 Comments: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Jam Crumble Cookie Squares

Carol Said:

Hi Silvana, Besides being gluten-free our daughter is allergic to almonds. Can I substitue something else? I’m a great-grandmother just starting out with learning to cook and bake gluten-free. I can’t tell you how helpful your blog is and how appreciative I am of all the information and the wonderful recipes you are sharing.

silvana Said:

Hi Carol, thanks for stopping by! Yes, can she have any nuts, like hazelnuts, macadamia nuts or pecans? If not, I would use all flour blend and leave out the nuts. Hope that helps! Talk soon, Silvana

Carol Said:

Yes, it’s only the almonds she’s allergic too, so I will try the pecans as I have them on hand. Thanks again!

Would like the recipe for the nutella.
