Categories: Cookies, Ethnic
Yield: 6 servings

1 1/4 c All-purpose flour 1/2 c Butter
3 tb Sugar

In a large mixing bowl stir together the flour and sugar. Cut in butter
until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Form mixture into a ball and knead
until smooth. Follow the directions below for any desired shape.

SHORTBREAD WEDGES: On an ungreased cookie sheet pat or roll dough into an
8-inch circle. For scalloped edge, with forefinger and thumb of the other
hand. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough circle into 12 to 16 pie-shape
wedges. Do not seperate wedges. Prick each wedge with a fork, making a
design. Bake at 325 degrees F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes or just until
edges are light brown. While warm, re-cut wedges. Remove from pan; cool on
a wire rack.

THUMBPRINTS: Prepare dough as directed; shape dough into 1-inch balls.
Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using your thumb,
press an indentation in the center of each cookie. Bake in a 325 degree F
oven about 18 minutes or until bottoms are light brown and wedges are
slightly golden. Immediately spoon 1/2 teaspoon fruit preserves (such as
cherry, strawberry, or peach) into each indentation. Cool completely, then
remove cookies from cookie sheet.

PECAN SPICE SHORTBREAD: Prepare the dough as directed, except substitute
brown sugar for the sugar and add 1 teaspoon apple pie spice to the flour
mixture. Pat the dough into an ungreased 9-by-9- by 2-inch baking pan.
Sprinkle dough with 1/4 cup chopped pecans; press nuts lightly into dough.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 23 to 25 minutes. While warm, cut into 16 2
1/4-inch squares. Cut each square diagonally to make triangles. Cool in
pan. Drizzle with Vanilla Icing. VANILLA ICING: In a small mixing bowl
combine 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Stir in enough milk (2 to 3 teaspoons) to make an icing of drizzling
consistency.
