Looked and looked on Zaar for just the shortbread crust and found many delicious crusts, but just not the one I was looking for. Perhaps I didn't key in the right search, but I found this recipe on the web and it's just what I was looking for...simple.

Great recipe. I like substituting 1/4 of the flour with almond flour. A double recipe can be spread into a half sheet pan and baked. Be sure to poke several holes. I like to spread the cooled crust with lightly sweetened mascarpone and lots of beautiful fresh fruit.

Dee-licious crust for my Strawberries & Cream Pie! I didn't want a thick crust so I reduced the flour to just a tad more than 1 cup, used 1 stick salted butter (omitted the salt), and 1/3 cup confectioners sugar. Turned out perfect and was really easy to work with. I beat the mixture with a mixer just until coarse crumbs formed then pressed into my pie plate. Will use it for a blueberries & cream pie next, then a lemon icebox pie. Thanks for sharing your simple yet delicious recipe!

I made this and it was so easy and delicious! I had no problem pressing it into my glass pie pan as shown in the picture. I was even able to make little designes around the sides. I used salted butter instead of unsalted and it turned out perfect! I filled it with homemade lemon curd:) yummy!
