EDWARD'S SHORT'NIN BREAD
EDWARD'S SHORT'NIN BREAD RECIPE
4 cups sifted flour
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 lb softened butter or margarine
Mix flour and brown sugar together thoroughly. Add butter and work in until a smooth dough is formed. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and pat to a 1/2 inch thickness. (Chill if necessary for easier handling) Cut dough into desired shapes and transfer to cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes or until very delicately browned. Remove sheets. Cool for about 5 minutes before transfereing to rack to cook thoroughly.
I apologize to Edward for not putting this on the Christmas recipes. Somehow I over looked it. He was very kind and understood. This recipe can be made and enjoyed anytime of year not just Christmas.
