We have a patient (who really is from Scotland) who bring us this every Christmas...Hers is still better than mine...maybe you have to be Scottish...but I think we are)...anyway she makes it by hand, beating the butter with a wooden spoon!
- 1 pound butter (room temperature-very soft)
- 1 Cup sugar
- 1 Cup rice flour
- 4 Cups (approximately) white all purpose flour
- superfine sugar for sprinkling
Whip the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Stir in the rice flour and enough of the regular flour to make a stiff dough. It should be firm, but not dry or crumbly.
Divide in half and pat each into a 9 inch square baking pan, lined with parchment. Prick with a fork.
Bake at 300 for about 55 minutes. Cut into bars and sprinkle with superfine sugar while still hot.
