A simple shortbread cookie, baked in a nine inch round cake pan, and cut into wedges.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and confectioners' sugar. Stir in the butter and vanilla until a stiff dough forms. Pat dough into 9-inch round cake pan and prick well with a fork. Sprinkle remaining sugar over dough.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, in the preheated oven, until golden. Cut into wedges while warm. Cool on wire rack; separate cookies.
