Shortbread… so easy! 2 sticks Land O Lakes salted butter ( the lady who gave me the recipe insisted)
2 and ¼ cups flour
6 tablespoons of white granular sugar
Let the butter soften in a bowl to room temp – not runny. Mix the dry ingredients with a fork and a knife. Keep “cutting” and cutting until you have pea sized balls and then use your hands gently to form it together in a big mass. Don’t play with it too much.
Flour your working surface and lay it out on top. Roll it with a well floured rolling pin, or just flatten it with your hands to about ¾ inch high.
Cut into 1” x2” pieces and lift them onto an ungreased cookie sheet with a spatula.
Prick with a fork three or four times
Bake in a 325 oven until they start to brown up ( it will happen faster on the bottom, but a little brown is better than undercooked) watch them closely and use your nose!
Lift them off with a spatula and let them cool on a hard surface.
