Scottish Shortbread

These have become a family favorite. I first found the recipe on Allrecipes listed as Scottish Shortbread IV.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 4 dozen

Prep Time: 10 min.   Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes  


2 cups butter softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
4-1/2 cups flour


Preheat oven to 325¬į.

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add 3 to 3-3/4 cups flour. Mix well.

Sprinkle board with the remaining flour. Knead for 5 minutes, adding enough flour to make a soft dough.
Roll out 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 3×1 inch strips. Prick with fork and place on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Tip: Use an old, dark cookie sheet. New and shiny will not give them that very light brown color unless you increase the cooking time.
