Pecan Shortbread

2 sticks butter, salted (do not substitute)
2 cups flour, sifted
3 T sugar
3 T Rice flour
1 T pecans, extra finely ground

In a strong mixer, beat the butter until it turns to a fluffy light color. Add both flours, sugar and the ground pecans. Start the mixer very slowly and mix until it forms a stiff dough and cleans the sides of the bowl.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat into a shortbread mold or roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into small circles then stamp with a shorbread stamp on each cooke.

For cookies, bake at 325 for about 15 minutes. Bake 25 minutes for the molded shortcake. Remove from oven immediately. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
