This delicious shortbread can be made with red rice flour, which I think has a more interesting flavour and colour. Chinese chefs use red rice flour in their sweet dishes. It is available in health food stores and Chinese grocery stores. Make this recipe with your children using star shape cutters. A batch can make 2 lovely gifts wrapped in cellophane on a disposable plate for the school teachers or friends and relations for any festive occasion.
