Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies
Recipe from Taste of Home
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 cups flour
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Gradually add in the flour and mix well. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 minute. Gently roll out the dough into an 11 x 8 inch rectangle. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into 2 x 1 inch pieces. Transfer the pieces onto the cookie sheet and prick a few times with a fork.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, move the shortbread cookies onto cooling racks and let cool completely. Enjoy!
