Scottish Shortbread for Christmas

Here is a quick traditional Scottish recipe for Christmas. One of my family's favorite Holiday recipes. A friend from Scotland taught me this recipe. Merry Christmas!

Scottish Shortbread

2 cups all-purpose flour - sifted
½ cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 cup real butter - softened

Preheat oven to 325º. Sift flour, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Gradually add butter into the mixture and combine with pastry blender or a fork. Pat mixture onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Pat it out thin and pierce with a fork about every inch. bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into squares and sprinkle with colored sugar while still warm.
