Scotch Shortbread

Scotch Shortbread	Opens photo in lightbox. Hit Escape or X to exit lightbox.

1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon water
1 pound butter softened
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar, for garnish

Pre-heat oven to 275 F. Measure sugar into bowl & sprinkle with water. Cream butter into sugar with a wooden spoon. Add flour and salt and knead dough with your hands until dough pulls away from side of bowl as well as your hands. Press dough into a ungreased 9 x 13-inch glass baking pan. Spread it flat right into the corners. Prick with fork about at 1 inch intervals. Sprinkle all with the additional 1/4 cup sugar. Bake for one hour or until pale golden. Cut while hot into diamonds or rectangle shapes. A pizza cutter works the best. Let cool.

Great recipe. This was my first try at making shortbread - I'd always been intimidated by the idea of making it. Very easy and my family loves it. In fact, I'm using the recipe again right now. 5 stars

Good recipe, but it takes a lot longer than 1 hour to cook at 275F, in my experience. This is the second year I've done these and I'm now at about 18 minutes past the hour and they still haven't turned pale golden brown, and my oven is at 275F according to my oven thermometre and the oven setting. Next year I'll try the cookies at 300F. 5 stars

This is a great recipe but it took longer than one hour to bake. I took them out of the oven after the hour but when I went to remove them from the pan they were not even close to being done. After cooling them, I had to put them back in for another 15 min. Next time I will bake them at 300 degrees instead of 275 degrees. 5 stars
