  • Add the bacon and chives; mix until evenly distributed. Combine the all purpose flour with the rice flour. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture; stir until just combined.

  • Press the dough, in an even layer, into the prepared pan. Cover and chill for 30 minutes or until firm.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).

  • Lightly score the dough with a knife into 16 squares (do not cut all the way through the dough). Brush the top with maple syrup.

  • Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until set and lightly golden. Immediately cut through the scored wedges. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool completely.
