And so, let the non-traditional shortbread recipe experiment commence. I’m sure you’ve indugled a time or two in your favorite shortbread cookies- I mean, how could you not love some shortbread cookies? So I wanted to take my love for shortbread and it into a savory, herby, melt-in-your-mouth deliciously perfect recipe to pair with any meal or eat as a snack!
I am happy to report that the shortbread experiment was a huge success! Now I do want to point out, these biscuits aren’t the big and fluffy kind you might think of immedietly when you hear the word biscuits… these Savory Shorbread Herb Biscuits are kind of a mix between biscuits, cookies, and crackers and aren’t they super cute with those herbs on top? They would make a stunning appetizer at your next gathering, tea party (do people still have tea parties well into adulthood?), or shower (bridal, baby…) and they are really simple to make compared to how involved they look. Promise.
Traditionally shortbread isn’t gluten-free, or vegan- but here I am showing you a delicious gluten-free AND vegan shortbread recipe using Melt Organic rich and creamy plant-based butter! Melt plant-based butter imitates the creaminess of real butter. It’s organic, non-GMO, and contains good fats that actually help your body turn into energy without the cholesterol. Now that’s better butter my friend!
Let’s take a closer look at what ingredients I used to make these delicious shortbread biscuits:
☆ gluten-free flour
☆ Melt Organic butter
☆ fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano, parsley, sage)
☆ flax egg
☆ baking powder
☆ vegan parmesan cheese
With only seven ingredients and 12 minutes needed to bake, these Savory Shortbread Herb Biscuits are easy to whip up in no time any day of the week! I really love the texture of Melt butter, it’s really perfect in this recipe. And it’s creamy enough to enjoy as you normally would.

Just as an fyi, the herbs placed on top are optional. They do make for a super cute display, but they aren’t baked into the shortbread because I found the oven makes them brown and crispy. SO, the decorating is optional but does look super cute. I found the fresh parsley to work the best if you wanted to bake one of the herbs into the shortbread.
I hope you enjoy these Savory Shortbread Herb Biscuits as much as I do! I love to see your re-creations so be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook!

These look so wonderful! So is that 1 tbsp of herbs total? You mentioned that you used “1/2 tbsp thyme, 1 small sprig rosemary, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 tbsp parsley, 3 leaves sage”. Did you use all of that in one batch? Or did you mince all of those herbs and then take 1 tbsp out of it? Thank you 🙂
I have the same question…how many Tablespoons total of minced herb goes into the dough?
I don’t have vegan cheese (not sold where I’m at) and can’t use nutritional yeast either due to wanting to make these for a kidney patient (all other ingredients are ok). How can I substitute the bulk of volume for cheese?
Hi there! You could leave out the cheese and I think these would still taste amazing! Or you could try nutritional yeast for a little bit of that cheesy flavor.
This was absolutely AMAZING. I used Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Flour, Oat Milk Butter and Violife Vegan Parmesan. Wow. Thank You!
Hi Elizabeth! I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe! 😁
