holiday shortbread

I had a craving for some shortbread to go with my morning tea. I had never made it before, but with only five ingredients, it couldn't be easier! Here is the recipe if you are in need of a sweet treat!

PS--these are Daisy tested and approved! Yup, I went into the other room and came back to a mess of crumbs. Luckily I only had cut a few to put on the tray and the rest were still in the pan.

Holiday Shortbread

5 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups cold butter

chopped nuts (optional)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Pat into an ungreased 15x10x2 pan. Prick with a fork. Top with nuts if desired.

Bake at 325 for 35 minutes or until center is set. Cool and cut into squares.
