Homemade Short Bread

This was something I made for my Dad for every holiday.  God love him and God rest is soul.

1 cup butter softened

3/4 cups sifted confectioners sugar

1/2 tspn vanilla extract (you can use maple instead)

2 cups flour

1 cup hazelnuts ground

1  1/2 tspn grated orange peal

I have done this recipe without the orange peal and hazlenut and it is still great.

Cream softened butter and add sugar, slowly add flour, add other ingredients until a good workable dough forms.

Spread out on greased cookie sheet evenly.

This is the hard part.  I use a greased rubber or plastic spatula.  Use spray pam to help.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 min or until slightly brown.

Remove from oven and when cool cut in squares and serve.

You will love, love this.

Stores well for a long time in tuperware or cookie tin.
