Here is an easy and delicious cookie recipe that I have made for many many years now:

SCOTCH SHORTBREAD COOKIES

1/2 cup confectioners sugar, well packed

1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sifted all purpose flour

Cream butter, add sugar, then flour, mix well. Pat the dough into an ungreased 8 inch square pan. Prick all over the surface with a fork and press edges down with fork. Bake at 350 degrees (325 degrees if using a glass pan)for about 30 minutes until delicately tan. Cut into squares when cool * ENJOY * ENJOY *

  24. You found me out! I was so pleased to discover your site. You have so many great ideas! I’ve just switched over to digital scrapbooking because it’s a little easier for me with the kids…but even that is a challenge to squeeze in…especially when I get lost online for hours upon hours. 🙂 So it’s good to find inspirational sites like yours to get me back on track! I hope you don’t mind if I keep checking back in for new ideas and new inspiration. 🙂
