Christmas Shortbread!

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with Christmas cookies!? I always say that if I had to choose one food to live on for the rest of my life, I would have to choose shortbread… Here is my recipe – Enjoy!

Cream 1 cup of butter by gradually adding 1/2 cup of sugar.
Cream until light & fluffy.
Stir in 2 1/2 cups of sifted all-purpose flour.
Chill several hours.
On a floured surface, roll 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Cut with 1 3/4 inch round cutter.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 300 about 30 minutes.
Cool slightly, remove.
This makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
