Melt-In-Your Mouth Scottish Shortbread Cookies


1 1/4 c. powdered sugar
4 c. flour (bleached flour works best)
2 tbsp. cornstarch
4 cubes butter (no substitutions, please) room temperature

Stir together powdered sugar, flour and cornstarch. Cut in butter until dough is consistency of play dough. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Form into balls. With rolling pin on very lightly floured surface, shape each ball into a 1/4 inch thick round. Transfer to baking sheets (two cookies per sheet). Prick each cookie with a fork in a pretty design. Bake at 275 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

When cooled, break apart into pie wedge sections.

Note: 1 cube of butter equals 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons butter (one stick).
