This recipe is so easy and
Shortbread is one of my favorite cookies 
So…


Ingredients:

That's it!  Doesn't take much =)

Directions:
Cream the butter and powdered sugar.
Sift Flour and Cornstarch
Add sifted Flour and Cornstarch and mix

Press evenly into a jellyroll pan.

Prick with a fork

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes 
at 30 minutes check color and remove

But leave in the pan until cool.

  13. O, i might actually have to make this... um, what size pan is that? Does saying it's a jellyroll pan mean it's a certain size? And how are we non-bakers supposed to know that? Cause i LOVE shortbread. And this looks easy. Or simple anyhow.

    Thanks! :-)
