More Last Minute Gifts: Brown Sugar Shortbread
Here is another quick and easy, but wonderful last minute Christmas gift. They can be made in molds as I did above, or just cut into squares and packaged that way.
This only has three ingredients, so use the best you can afford.
2/3 cup dark brown cane sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat all the ingredients together, either by hand or with a whisk attachment on a hand beater or stand mixer. Finish mixing by pressing together by hand.
Press mixture into an ungreased 9" X 13" pan and bake for 18 - 20 minutes, or until golden on top and cooked through. Cut into bars and cool in pan for 5 - 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
