Bainbridge Butterscotch Shortbread

Author/Submitted by: Katherine Hall Page, 1994
Servings: 36
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

Ingredients:
1  cup  unsalted butter
1/2  cup  dark brown sugar
2  cups  flour
1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
1/4  teaspoon  salt
1  cup  walnuts or pecans, finely chopped

Directions:
Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder together and set aside. Cream the butter until soft and gradually add the sugar. Add the flour mixture a little at a time and mix well. Refrigerate for one hour. Divide the dough in half and keep one portion in the refrigerator while rolling out the other to approximately 1/4" thickness. (The dough gets soft quickly.) Sprinkle the dough with the nuts and gently press them in with the rolling pin. Cut into 1-1/2" squares. Pix uses a paper pattern as she is hopeless at estimating things like this, unlike Faith. Prick with a fork and place the squares on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Bake until golden brown, approximately 15 minutes in a preheated 350F oven. Makes 6 dozen squares. This is a devastatingly rich, crumbly cookie.
