Highlanders with blackberries (1 colour)

Ian made these delicious shortcakes this week. They're delicious with blackberries which is just as well given how many we have in the fridge at the moment.

Butter - 100 g
Caster sugar - 50 g
Plain flour - 100 g
Rice flour - 50 g
Demerara sugar to coat
Blackberries to serve

1) Cream the butter and caster sugar together in a large bowl. Sieve in the plain and rice flour and mix. Knead well with your hands.
2) Roll into a thick sausage and roll in the demerara sugar.

3) Cut into 15 slices and bake on a greased baking tray for 15 minutes at 190°C until golden brown.
