cookie #11: petticoat tails

this is a simple & easy, slice & bake shortbread recipe!

-2 cups butter or margarine
-2 cups sifted powdered sugar
-2 tsp flavoring (vanilla, almond or wintergreen)
-4 1/2 cups flour
-1/2 tsp salt

mix butter, sugar and flavoring thoroughly. measure flour by dipping or sifting. mix flour and salt; stir in. mix with hands. mold into rolls about 2" across. wrap in wax paper; chill several hours or overnight.

heat over to 400. cut slices about 1/8" thick. place a little apart on ungreased cookie sheet. bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

my notes:
i baked my first dozen plain and then i rolled my dough in sprinkles! everything is better with sprinkles right? it just seemed fun. and they are just delicious, loved by my husband, my mom & my coworkers. this recipe is a keeper!
