Scottish Shortbread



1 cup flour

½ cup butter (1 stick) softened

¼ cup sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Use a fork or your hands to mix all ingredients together until crumbly. (Mom swears she does this in the pan she bakes it in – but I still use a mixing bowl.)

Press the mixture into an ungreased 8 x 8 baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes until edges are a tiny bit brown.

Cool before slicing into squares.
