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.

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