    Default Searching for recipe "Shortbread Squares"

    Years ago I collected My Great Recipe cards and this was one of our family favorites. I entered it into my computer and then threw away the card. The program dumped and I no longer have it. The recipe has butter flour and sugar. The dough is placed into an 8 x 8 ungreased pan and baked. When done the cookies are cut into squares and put back into the oven, now turned off, until the oven is completely cool. I haven't found it after searching for days. Does anybody have this recipe?

    Found this on a Recipe Link message board:

    "Dear Julz,
    This is the recipe that I have from My Great Recipes. Happy Holidays!

    SHORTBREAD SQUARES
    Prep time: 20 min. Baking time 1 1/2 Hrs, Oven temp: 275 Degrees F

    For about 10 dozen 1-inch-square cookies, you will need:

    2 cups butter or margarine
    1 cup sugar
    4 cups plus 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    Colored, course granulated sugar

    Tips: Have all ingredients at room temperature. You can use powdered sugar, if you like, instead of the colored granulated sugar. A variety of colors can be used for the granulated sugar.

    Preparation:
    1. Cream together butter and sugar by hand or with mixer until creamy and smooth.

    2. Add flour all at once. Mix with hands or spoon until ingredients are well blended. Turn mixture into a buttered 13-by-9-inch baking pan.

    3. Cover with waxed paper. Evenly spread dough by pressing on paper with palms of hands. Remove paper. Prick top of dough closely with fork.

    4. Bake on center shelf at 275 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off heat. Remove pan from oven. Cut at once into 1-inch squares. Return pan to oven. Close door. Remove pan when oven is cool.

    5. Sprinkle squares with colored sugar. Store in pan, wrapped airtight in foil, or remove squares and place in airtight containers.
