1 cup Berry Sugar
1 cup rice flour
3 cups all purpose flour

Directions:
All mixing must be done by hand, not mixer. Wood spoons are suggested.

Cream together butter and berry sugar. Add rice flour and mix well. Add regular flour one cup at a time. Knead well to mix thoroughly. Flour board and take 1/3 of dough. Roll dough to about inch thick and cut with small juice glass or cutter. Place on cookie sheet and prick tops with a fork twice. Bake at 350˚ F for 15-20 minutes. Cookies should be pale in color but crispy (browning suggests an overdone cookie).

Personal Notes:
So, have you ever had shortbread cookies? Apparently this is a legit recipe from my Scottish Great Grandfather, so all the more reason to trust it! These cookies are simple, tasty at Christmas time and probably good with tea too. One of those European things, you know? And seriously, don't use an electric mixer! It's taboo with these cookies - everyone says they come out funny if you do.
