Shortbread Cookie Recipe

My favorite shortbread recipe comes from my Great Grandmother who was raised in France.  You only need 3 ingredients - yes only three!  Any recipe from France is probably rich and grand but this is from my family so it makes it even more special.

You need 1 cup berry sugar which is very fine granulated sugar, 1 pound butter and 4 cups flour.  The secret I am sure to the success of the recipe is in the butter!  Cream butter thoroughly, add sugar and mix well. Gradually add in the flour.  Bake in modern oven at 375 for 10 to 15 minutes.  I love the modern oven line!  When you roll the dough out it will be crumbly and you can't really handle it a lot.  My favorite shape for this cookie is a simple circle.  The result to me is heaven on earth!
