|My dad's Easter basket|
|Scottish Shortbread Cookies|
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup butter at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients well (it works best to use your hands). Dough will be stiff. Press into a 9 x 9" buttered dish. Prick top with a fork (I did every 1/2"). Bake until pale golden brown on the edges. Be sure not to over-bake. Cool and cut into squares.
