Today I made some yummy shortbread to bring to some friends of ours who we are helping move into their new home tomorrow. I think it will be a great treat to pop in our mouths as we go throughout the day.
Back in the 80's is when I got this recipe from a neighbor and it's one of my favorite desserts that I'd like to share with you today.
1 lb. butter (room temp)
1 cup sugar
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
13" x 18" jelly roll pan
Mix all ingredients by hands until the dough forms a ball. Spread out the dough onto the pan in an even layer. Pierce the dough all over with the tines of a fork. Sprinkle with colored sugar if desired and bake in a 325' oven for 30 -40 minutes or until light golden brown.
