(Makes approx 18)
150g rice flour
250g plain flour
250g softened unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
1 tin (410g) strawberries
100g icing sugar
100g cream cheese


Drain the syrup from the strawberries (keep it for later) then blend the strawberries to a pulp.

Place the flour, rice flour, butter, caster sugar and pulped strawberries into a food mixer and mix until a smooth dough is formed.

Dust your bench with flour and roll out the dough to a thickness of 2-4 cm, using a biscuit cutter cut into circles and place into patty pans.
Bake at 185°C for 20-25 minutes.

Cream together the icing sugar and cream cheese then add enough strawberry syrup to turn pink and place in the fridge for 1 hour.

Allow the baked shortcakes to cool then spoon over icing sugar.
