Ingredients >
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup butter

Method >
Heat oven to 325 degrees.

In a mixing bowl combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter till mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Form mixture into a ball and knead until smooth.

On an ungreased cookie sheet pat or roll the dough into an 8-inch circle. Using your fingers, press to make a scalloped edge. With a knife, cut circle into 16 pie-shape wedges. Leave wedges in the circle shape.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or till bottom just starts to brown and center is set. Cut circle into wedges again while warm. Cool on the cookie sheet for five minutes. Remove from cookie sheet; cool on a wire rack.

Yield: Makes 16.
