Shortbread is like an old faithful friend. Always there when you need it. Makes you feel good. Takes you to a place you’ll want to visit time and time again. This old friend is delightful, bringing people together. Young and old alike come together over this and all agree, its delectable!
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 cups plain flour
½ cup rice flour
Combine the butter and sugar until it is a paste. Add the rice flour and mix well. Add the plain flour bit by bit and mix well in between additions. Knead into a dough. Put the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes. Once out, halve the dough and roll each ball out with a rolling pin until about half a centimetre thick. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes out and place them on a lined baking tray. Bake the cookies at 180 degrees celcius for about 12 minutes. Smell your kitchen!! The aromas of shortbread so delicately baking away are absolutely scrumptious! Leave to cool and ta da!! You’re done! Enjoy this old favourite!
