Quick and easy! I doubled the vanilla andused caster sugar. They did brown up quite a bit, but perhaps my oven was a bit hot. I pulled them out before they burned. Not like a traditional shortbread but very delicious! Thanks!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar along with the vanilla extract, until mixture is fluffy & light.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together flour & salt, then, 1/2 cup at a time, add it to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition.
  4. Scoop dough onto the center of a large ungreased, 9-inch square baking pan, & using a spatula spread it out evenly.
  5. Bake the huge cookie on the center rack of the oven until firm to the touch & golden brown, about 35 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven & cut the 9-inch square cookie into 1 1/2-inch squares, making 36 smaller cookies.
  7. Place them on a wire rack to cool before eating.
