I first had these Toblerone shortbread cookies with browned flour at church years ago.  A sweet lady brought them for a Christmas potluck, and they were so good.  I asked her for the recipe, and have since made them many times.  They have become a family favourite.

She said they were from a well known bakery and called “Phipps Famous Shortbread” and that the recipe had been shared in the newspaper years ago.  She had cut it out and been making it ever since.

Before making the cookies, the flour is browned in the oven before it’s added to the cookie dough.  Therefore it adds an amazing texture and nutty flavour to the cookies.  And the Toblerone, is the most delicious Swiss chocolate.  These will be a favourite as soon as you try them.

Toblerone Shortbread with Browned Flour

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup fruit sugar
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 lb Toblerone Chocolate


  1. To brown the all purpose flour, spread it evenly on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven about 4-5 inches from the top, on broil.  Watch it at all times, so it doesn't burn but is browned.  Turn the flour with a  spatula several times to brown it on all sides.  Let cool, and then sift.
  2. In a stand mixer combine the butter and fruit sugar and beat until fluffy.
  3. Add in the sifted browned flour, and rice flour and mix until the dough comes together.
  4. Chop the Toblerone chocolate bars into chunks about the size of a sugar cube, and mix into the dough.
  5. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake at 300F for 50-60 minutes.

  1. Oh my, these cookies look so delicious…Toblerone and shortbread together, YES. And I’m so curious about the toasted flour, I really need to try this!

  2. Krista,
    Thanks so much -such busy weeks this time of year, but now I’m enjoying the fruits of my labour and eating all the cookies. 😉

  3. Jo-Anna, thanks so much. They’re first cookie to be almost gone out of all five I made, so that must mean something. 😉
    Best, Dannyelle
