The very best shortbread and amazed this has not been reviewed. My mum used this recipe and I do too - always turns out. The combination of berry sugar (very fine sugar) and the rice flour is the key to the texture and taste. Highly recommend this recipe if directions are followed as written. Thanks and thanks again for putting this in print.
