admin's picture
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour and sugar. Cut in butter or margarine till mixture resembles fine crumbs. Form the mixture into a ball and knead till smooth.
• For wedges, on an ungreased cookie sheet pat the dough into an 8-inch circle. Using your fingers, press to make a scalloped edge. With a fork, prick dough deeply to make 16 pie-shape wedges. Bake in a 300° oven for 40 to 50 minutes or till edges are very lightly browned and center is set. Cut along perforations while warm.
• For strips or rounds, on a lightly floured surface pat dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 24 (2x1-inch) strips with a knife or into 24 rounds with a 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 300° oven about 30 minutes or till bottoms are lightly browned.
