Ingredients

1 cup sugar
plus 2 tablespoons
¾ pound butter, unsalted
room temperature
3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
sifted
cup cornstarch
sifted

Directions

In a large bowl, beat 1 cup of the sugar with the butter until light and fluffy.

Sift together the flour and cornstarch and gradually mix into the creamed butter.

Gather the dough into a ball and flatten into a disk. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Trace a 12-inch circle on a large baking sheet.

Pat out the chilled dough to fit the circle, taking care that the top is even and smooth.

Score the top of the pastry into 8 equal wedges. Press decorative designs into the edges, if desired.

Bake the shortbread in the upper middle of the oven for 35 minutes; do not allow to color.

Remove from the oven, sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and let cool on the sheet. Break into wedges before serving.
