Shortbread - Family Circle

Author/Submitted by: Family Circle Christmas magazine circa 1966
Servings: 1
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  Cup  butter (no substitutions!)
1/2  Cup  powdered sugar
2  Cups  flour

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.] (Kathy Lankford)
