I don’t have a nice picture of shortbread, but whenever I had this it was during the holiday’s in the winter. Therefore, to me this picture is very appropriate in going with this recipe.

This is a great recipe that is soo tasty and simple to do. I don’t usually like short bread, but this one is the exception. I remember my Grandma Mary having this already made and bringing it with her when she would come to spend Christmas with us. These are good-warm memories. I have to admit that I haven’t made this in years only because I get carried away with making the fudge and Krispy treats – will just have to fit it in again.

Short Bread

Cream  – 1  lb.  Butter

1  C.  Sifted Powdered Sugar

                                                      5   C. Sifted Flour

Form into cube, cut in half, place 1 part between wax paper. Roll out to fit into 8” pan. Repeat with second half in another pan.

Bake in slow oven @ 300° for one hour.

Cut as soon as taken from oven.

Make small holes on top with fork, by just touching through the surface throughout the top to making a spotted design.
