The great thing about shortbread is it’s the perfect cookie to make with the kids. Because it's essentially a butter cookie it's really hard to overmix. It pats out easily and you can make it into fun shapes.
¾ cup organic cane sugar
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup brown rice flour
1 tsp fine sea salt
1 ½ cups cold unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Add sugar into food processor. Pulse to grind.
Add flours and salt and then pulse a little more. Add butter cubes and mix to a crumb. Alternatively combine the dry ingredients, whisk briefly then mix softened butter until a dough ball forms.
Move the dough to the counter and knead until it forms a uniform dough ball.
Roll out to ½" thick and cut to shape of your choice. My go-to shape is circles.
Place onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake 25 to 35 minutes until a pale tan colour.
Cool on the pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a tin or serving platter.
