1  cup  butter
1/3  cup  sugar, fruit (superfine)
2 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour, sifted

Oven: 300 F for cookies; 275 F for large whole shortbread Cream butter until light. Add sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time to a total of 2 cups, mixing well.

Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes. Roll out each piece to 3/8" thickness. Cut into desired shapes or leave whole and crimp edges and prick surfaces with fork. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet to slightly golden, 25 to 30 minutes for cookies and 30 to 35 minutes for whole shortbread.
