i mentioned this shortbread last month here. it's my great-grandmother's recipe. by no means is it wholesomely healthy, but it's deliciously basic, and with only three ingredients you know what you're eating.
so in the words of nana love::
1/2 lb butter
1 cup icing sugar
about 2 1/2 cups plain flour
cream butter and icing sugar. add flour and beat. the more you beat the better the shortbread.
bake in moderate oven until just browning. about ten minutes-ish.
