Scottish cookie Shortbread

Shortbread is a type of biscuit traditionally made from one part white sugar,two part butter and three part oatmeal.Shortbread is so named because of its crumbly texture.The cause of texture is its high fat content provided by the butter.source taken form here.
I prepared Shortbread for the first time with rice flour and plain flour.
While seraching for info on shortbread i came across this blog Cake batter and crumbs where Tracy shares recipe of Vanilla Bean Shortbread with Berries and cream,..do hop in at her space,its droolworthy:-)
