Scottish Shortbread

Easy to make and ready in no time. This is a go-to cookie for busy days with many guests.

Makes enough batter to fill a large baking sheet (approximately12'x16')

5 cups white flour
3/4 cup cornstarch or potato starch
1 cup sugar
2 cups cold butter (4 sticks)
(1-2 cups ground almonds -optional)  If using 2 cups ground almonds decrease flour by about 1 cup.

Cut butter into pads.  Put half the ingredients in a food processor - blend until chunks of butter are no larger than the size of a pea. Pour on cookie tray.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Press mixture into pan firmly with hands or other flat object.  Lightly score with a fork.  Bake at 350ยบ for 20 - 30 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons sugar.  Cut into squares while still hot.  If you forget to cut while hot, put the pan back into a hot oven until warm.  Then cut into squares.
