I've been chatting with Barbara (via email) and she suggested I post this recipe to the thread. So, here you go!

Nanny's Shortbread


1 lb butter (yes, a whole pound)
1 c. icing/confectioners sugar
4 c. flour

Cream together butter and sugar. Add flour, mixing well after each addition. Then form into log shapes and roll in wax paper. Refrigerate until firm (I usually chill over night). When ready to bake, slice into 1/4" to 1/2" slices and bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheet at 300 F for 20 minutes. These cookies should not brown, just be barely golden. Enjoy!

Variation: Use brown sugar instead of icing sugar; add Skor bits; add chocolate chips; add citrus zest.

Enjoy!
