|A L'il Burnt Toast Creation|
The photo is a gift wrapped by my daughter in her creative way for a friend of hers. There is a gift in each of the 3 layers of the snowman.
**Chocolate Chunk Shortbread**
2 cups butter, softened
1 cup instant dissolving (fruit/berry) sugar
1 cup sifted rice flour
8 oz. high quality milk chocolate, cut in chunks
1. Spread 1-1/2 cups of the flour on baking sheet; place under broiler 4 – 5 inches from heat. With oven door open, roast flour, turning with spatula every minute, for about 7 minutes or until medium brown colour. Let cool to room temperature.
