Ingredients

2 c
all-purpose flour
3/4 c
icing sugar
1/3 c
rice flour
3/4 tsp
salt
1 c
cold unsalted butter, cubed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 300F. Line a 9 x 13 in. non-stick metal pan (I used a pyrex glass pan) with parchment paper, with overhanging edges.
2
WHIRL flour with icing sugar, rice flour and salt in a food processor until combined. Add cubed butter ( I used salted butter so I reduced salt to 1/4 tsp.) through the feed tube while pulsing until dough just comes together.
3
Dough will be slightly crumbly. Transfer to prepared pan. Press dough over bottom of pan. Use the flat bottom of a measuring cup to smooth the top. ( I used a pastry cloth and rolled a smooth glass from side to side that fit inside the pan.) Score the surface into 24 squares, if desired. Prick

( I used a pastry cloth and rolled a smooth glass from side to side that fit inside the pan.) Score the surface into 24 squares, if desired. Prick dough all over with a fork.
5
BAKE in center of oven until top is just golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Cut shortbread into squares while still hot. Remove parchment and place on a cooling rack. (I just put the dish on a cooling rack after cutting squares.)
6
Keep in an airtight container at room temperature for several weeks. (I used a cookie tin).
