  • Cream together 250g of softened Mainland Original Butter with 125g caster sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Stir in 280g sifted plain flour and 60g rice flour. use your hands as mixture becomes too stiff to work with a spoon. On a lightly floured surface, knead mixture until smooth.
  • Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll into small balls. Place on baking tray, leaving room to spread. Press down the top of each ball with a fork dusted in flour.  Or, press the dough to a desired thickness and use a cutter to cut into shapes, or use a shortbread mould. 
  • Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes (depending on size) or until just beginning to turn golden. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
