Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Then add 3-3/4 cups flour and mix thoroughly.
  3. Turn your dough onto a flat surface and knead for 5 minutes, adding enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  4. Now it's time to get rolling! Using a rolling pin, roll your dough to 1/2-in. thickness.
  5. Then throw your dough into an 8x8 inch pan, prick the top with a fork and pop it in the oven.
  6. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  7. Then it's time to shape your shortbread. Note: There are a few traditional 'styles' you can go with—pizza-like slices called 'petticoat tails', small circular biscuits or 'rounds', or rectangular bars known as 'shortbread fingers'. We've decided to go with the 'fingers'. Simply cut your giant cookie into 3x1 inch strips, and enjoy!
