Proof that I do indeed read and pay attention to the comments left on my blog -- behold the recipe for the "Shivers of Joy" shortbread referenced earlier this week...I realize now it was a bit cruel to mention anything that produces shivers of joy without explaining how you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar, minus 2 T or so
2 1/3 cup flour
1/4 t salt
handful of chopped hazelnuts (optional)
Mix together with a pastry blender. Press into a greased 9X9 pan and prick with a fork. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes until pale brown. Cool for 10 minutes, then cut.
Servings: unknown, dependent upon baker's ability to resist snarfing down the entire batch immediately.
