 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Sugar
    1       lb           Butter
    3 1/2   c            Flour, all purpose
    1       c            Rice flour
    2       tb           Sugar
 
   Preheat oven to 350F.  Place 1 cup sugar in food
   processor; blend 30 sec. (or use fruit sugar).  Add to
   softened butter and cream mixture until very fluffy.
   Combine flour and rice flour.  Beat into batter in
   small portions.  Turn batter out onto a lightly
   floured surface. Knead until smooth, adding up to 1/2
   c more all-purpose flour, if needed. Press into a 15 x
   9 jelly roll pan.  Score into bars with a sharp knife.
   Prick surface with fork. Sprinkle with remaining 2 T
   sugar. Bake 10 minutes then lower heat to 300F and
   bake until golden, about 30 to 40 minutes.  Cut along
   scored lines, cool and store in air tight container.
