Ingredients
  • 100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 100g Be-Ro Plain Flour
  • 50g Whitworths Ground Rice
  • 30g demerara sugar
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

  • Cream together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Add the flour and ground rice, then mix well. Using your hands, knead to bring the mixture together. It will appear crumbly but don’t add water – the dough will come together as you work it.

  • Roll into a thick sausage about 12cm long.

  • Scatter the demerara sugar on a large plate, then gently roll the dough in it to coat the sides but not the ends.

  • Cut the dough sausage into 15 slices then arrange evenly spaced on a baking tray. Bake for 15 mins or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on the tray before serving.
