Shortbread
What You Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ pound butter, softened

  • How To Cook:
    1. Place all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend well. If you have a heavy-duty electric mixer, cut in the butter with the machine. If not, do it by hand with a pastry blender.

    2. Knead the dough by hand for just a moment and form it into a circle ¾ inch thick on a nonstick baking sheet, and flute the edges.

    3. Prick the whole circle with a fork. Bake in a preheated 325°F oven for ½ hour, or until it just begins to turn a light golden brown.

    4. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, and then remove it to a rack for the final cooling. When cool, the cookie can be cut, or simply break it up into pieces and serve it with tea.

    NOTE:
        If you wish to form smaller cookies from this recipe, just remember to watch the baking time. Smaller cookies will cook more quickly.
