NEWS FLASH! These little morsels are so small they contain absolutely no fat or calories!! Thrilling to know, isn't it?? I kid, I kid. However, I do feel that shortbread *can* be eaten in moderation while still savoring it's flaky, buttery goodness.

1 C butter, room temperature (2 sticks, folks)
2 1/2 C flour
3/4 C powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients using a stand or hand mixer. The dough will be crumbly.

Pour the dough into an ungreased 9x9" baking dish. Pat down the dough, working it into the corners of the dish. Pierce the dough many times with a fork before baking for 30-35 minutes.

Cut the dough into pieces while still warm. Otherwise, it flakes apart and breaks if you try to cut it when it's fully cooled.
