Brown Sugar Shortbread

1 pound butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4- 3/4 cup extra flour for kneading dough

Preheat oven to 325°F. 

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add 3 3/4 cups flour; mix well. 

Sprinkle counter with some of the extra flour and knead dough for five minutes, adding enough of the remaining flour to make a soft, non-sticky dough. 

Roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch-by-1 inch strips. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Prick with fork. 

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 4 dozen.
