Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies

1 c butter
2/3 c brown sugar, firmly packed
2 c + 2 T flour, sifted

Cream butter until fluffy. Add sugar gradually. Add flour and knead until smooth. (Chill if necessary to keep dough firm; example: if you live in Florida.)

Roll to 1/4" thick on floured board. Cut in shapes with cookie cutters or into squares or rectangles with a sharp knife.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Optional: Beat an eggyolk lightly with 1 T milk, using a fork. Paint this glaze on the cookies before baking.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Watch. Should be only delicately browned.

Yield: 3 dozen.
