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.
