butter (no substitutions!)
Cream butter and sugar, then knead in flour.
Place dough on cookie sheet and pat out a 3/4 inch thick rectangle or circle. Prick surface. Chill 1/2 hour. Bake 5 minutes at 375 degrees and 45 minutes at 300 degrees, until golden but not brown. Cut into squares or wedges.
[I've substituted whole wheat flour for half the white flour. It doesn't exactly make this a healthy treat, but it does add an interesting flavor and color.]
