1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon reserved
In a medium mixing bowl mix all the ingredients until well blended. The absolute best way to mix this is to wash your hands well, dry them and then mix with the tools God gave you until it is smooth. If is seems too dry and crumbly add a few drops of milk and continue mixing until smooth. On an ungreased baking pan pat it into about an 8 inch circle that is about 1/2 inch thick. With a fork, lightly prick the surface of the shortbread then cut into 8 or 10 pie shaped pieces, but DO NOT separate the slices from the circle. Bake it at 350 for about 25 -30 minutes ( Ovens vary. You want it completely baked, but not browned) Remove from the oven and immediately cut the pieces again, following the lines of the previous cut. Sprinkle lightly with the reserved sugar. Remove the pieces from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
This is a very simple but tasty treat when you are low on ingredients and time, but really do want a little something sweet until you can get to the grocery store and buy something truly decadent!
