Scottish Shortbread

Shortbread are popular cookies for everyone. They can be made into rolled, shaped cookies. Or, they can be made into pan cookies. The batter can be pressed into a baking pan and cut into squares or finger-shapes.

Shortbread are recommended for those who have to watch their sugar intake, and they are tasty for those just wanting a wonderful taste treat.

Here's a very simple and quick recipe for all to enjoy! Even though you can save calories and fat by using margaine, I wouldn't touch margarine with a ten-foot pole. The butter is just TOO delish!

Scottish Shortbread

wet ingredients:
1-1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
Mix these two ingredients together until creamy.

dry ingredients:
2-1/2 cups unbleached flour
dash of salt
Stir these ingredients into the creamed mixture. Mix thoroughly.

Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly grease a 9"x13" baking pan.
Press mixture into pan and even it out. It'll be about 1/4" thick.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until edges are brown.
Remove from oven when done and cool prior to cutting.

Makes about 25 bars.
