 Categories: Christmas, Holiday, Breads
      Yield: 16 Servings
 
      1 c  Butter
    1/2 c  Sugar
      1 ts Vanilla extract
      2 c  Flour
      2 pn Salt
 
  Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and
  fluffy.  Mix flour and salt, then beat into butter mixture until
  thoroughly blended, to make a soft dough.
  
  To make bars: on work surface dusted with flour, pat dough into
  rectangle 1/2" thick, 2" wide, and about 17" long. Use knife or
  fluted pastry cutter to cut into 1" bars. Use spatula to transfer
  bars to ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 1" between bars. Prick each
  bar with fork several times. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly
  colored. Do not overbake; the bars should not brown.  Let cool on
  cookie sheet for one minute, then carefully transfer to wire racks to
  finish cooling.
  
  To make wedges: Dust your hands and ungreased cookie sheet with
  flour. Pat dough into ball. Pat ball into flat disk about 1/2" thick
  and 7" in diameter on cookie sheet. With edge of plastic ruler dusted
  with flour, mark disk in 8 wedges, cutting about halfway through
  dough, and prick dough all over and crimp edges with fork. Bake for
  30 minutes, then take cookie sheet out and cut through shortbread on
  marked lines. Return shortbread to oven for five more minutes. Let
  wedges cool on cookie sheet for one minute, then carefully transfer
  to wire racks to finish cooling.

  walnuts, or hazelnuts to flour mixture.

  chips to flour mixture.

  miniature semisweet chocolate chips to flour mixture.
