  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place butter (not softened) in a large mixing bowl. Add flour, sugar and corn starch. Mix with hands (do not use a mixer) until blended and most of dough is like course cornmeal. It will be very lumpy.
  3. Spread a portion of the dough into the bottom of a glass pie pan and press firmly into the pan. Add dough until the thickness is about 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Place in oven and bake until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and use a fork to create perforations. Shortbread will break easily when cooled. Remove from pie pan by placing a plate to cover, then flipping over - shortbread will fall out in one piece.

I used this recipe last year...people couldn't get enough of it! It received raves from all who tried it. Thank you, Margaret!

This is as close to authentic Scotch Shortbread I have found in a long time. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

I went into this hoping to adopt it as our Fraser shortbread recipe but it wasn't quite what we expected. It was very hard and tasteless. Disappointing.

Mine are better though..
