      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

This recipe was on the back of the HAS NO Aldi flour which I have just thermified. They are delicious and hard to believe they are gluten free. I would imagine any gluten free flour brand would give the same result. Devoured by those at husbands work place. Recipe suitable for TM31. I did try reducing the sugar on my second batch and they were lighter and crumblier. I prefer recipe as is - but see what you prefer and experiement. You can follow me on Facebook at 'Mixin' it Gluten Free - Happy Cooking!

    These biscuits are just devine. I have tried to cook gluten free shortbread biscuits for years and the recipes I have used have always failed. My oven is fan forced and I cooked at 150 degrees for 18 mins.
    I will cook these regularly for my son and I who are Coeliac. Thanks for the recipe. Cooking 7
