  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In mixing bowl, cream butter. Add flour and sugar; mix just to combine (chill 10 minutes if too soft).

  2. Pat into an 8-inch round cake pan; crimping edge with a floured fork. Bake until firm and slightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes (drape with foil if browning too quickly). Immediately score into eight wedges; cool completely. Turn out of pan; slice with a serrated knife.

    I love this recipe. I have tried it with putting fine chopped lavender or crushed coriander and then glazed with a chocolate ganache!

    Simple and delicious. I used a square pan and cut the cookies into 16 squares.
