Chocolate Shortbread

I have been wanting to try out another version of shortbread recipe that uses rice flour. Inspired by my colleague's Lavendar Shortbread. I found the receipe from Dessert First. Below is my adaptation. I decided to add some cocoa powder. Probably due to the cocoa powder, it is not sweet enough. More fine-tuning on the taste. But the texture is quite good, it is very "loose", melt-in-the-mouth type. This is still not the taste that I wanted to get.

Will make another attempt after my exams. TodayI have baked some scones and muah chee as well. Maybe this is my last bakes till exams finished?


113g butter, softened
1 cups flour (replace with 1 tbsp of rice flour)
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Sift the flour.
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer until creamy.
Add the flours and cocoa powder and beat until combined.

Wrap the dough and roll out to about 1/4" thickness and chill until firm, about an hour.

Preheat the oven to 165C degrees.

Remove from fridge and cut desired shapes. Place on parchment lined baking sheets and bake until just golden, about 18 minutes.
