Yummy Shortbread

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. 

Shortbread ingredients:

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. 

Remove from the oven and immediately cut into squares while it's hot.  Then let cool before serving.   Keep stored in an airtight container.
