       Title: Fun Teatime Shortbread
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
     3/4 c  Unsalted butter; room temp
     1/2 c  Sugar
   1 3/4 c  All-purpose flour
            A pinch of salt
  
        Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat butter and sugar in bowl until well
   combined. Sift flour and salt into butter mixture. Using fingers, rub
   mixture until moist clumps form. Gently knead until soft dough forms.
   Divide dough in half. Press each dough piece to 9 1/2 inch round about 1/4
   inch thick. Roll lightly with rolling pin to smooth top.
        Cut out about 8 cookies using 3 inch cookie cutter. (Gather scraps,
   pat out and cut those too.) Repeat with second half of dough. Place cookies
   on 2 baking sheets. Pierce each cookie several times with a fork. Bake
   until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Transfer to racks to
   cool completely.
