DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325F degrees.
  • Blend the confectioner's sugar into the butter, and then gradually add the flour, 1 cup at a time. Dough will be very thick. At this point, you may add crushed lavender flowers or rosemary, if you wish.
  • Place dough on floured surface, pat down, and roll out into a square or circle 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares or Petticoat Tail wedges, and carefully place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Prick the top of each square or wedge with a fork.
  • Bake at 325F degrees for 25 to 30 minutes; cookies should be pale on top, but golden brown on the bottom.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle with sugar if you wish, and cool on wire racks.
  • Store in an airtight container.
