Momma gonna make some shortbread shortbread

     This my husband's mother's recipe for shortbread:

Kay's Shortbread

1 cup soft butter
2/3 cup super fine deluxe sugar
2 1/2 cup sifted flour

In a bowl cream the butter and gradually add sugar until the sugar is disolved.
Work in flour gradually until mixture is crumbly.  Divide mixture into 2 8x8x2
cake or pie pans.  Pat down firmly.  Flute the edges with a fork and divide each
pan into 16 wedges with a knife.  Bake at 300' for 45 minutes or until golden
brown.  Recut wedges and let cool in pan.

make some more for tonight's holiday chorus concert.  Our favorite tradition is to
fill a tin of shortbread.  We all jump into the car.  Crank up the Christmas music
on the radio.  Sing along and look at the Christmas lights and pass around the
