I know there are a lot of recipes for this cookie but this is the one i use. If you love shortbread cookies as much as i do then this is for you. If you’ve never made shortbread you must try it, it’s so easy. Just be sure to use real butter, no margarine here. You can only get that rich buttery crisp taste if you use butter.
1 cup unsalted butter, soft
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups plain flour
(and granulated sugar to sprinkle when done)
Cream butter, add powdered sugar. Beat til light and fluffy. Add flour and stir well. Press into 15x10x1 inch jelly roll pan, cut into fingers or squares, prick all over with fork lightly and chill for 30 min. Bake 375 for 5 min.-reduce heat to 300 and bake for 20 min. until a pale golden color. When done sprinkle with sugar.
