Number of Servings: 8


    8 tablespoons (1stick) unsalted butter
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


1) Preheat oven to 300 degrees with an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add flour, sugar and cocoa; mix just until combined. (Chill dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes if it is too soft to handle)

2) Pat dough into an 8-inch round cake pan; press edges down with the times of a floured fork. Bake until firm; about 30 minutes. Immediately score (make sure not to cut all the way through) into eight wedges; cool completely. Turn out of pan; break wedges apart.

Shortbread can be stored in an air tight container at room temperature for three days.

Makes 8 wedges.
