Dutch Shortbread

1 cup butter (not margarine), softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour

Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar gradually, beating well after each addition. Add egg and beat well. Add flour a bit at a time, stirring well after each addition. (Dough will be stiff and sticky.)

Divide the dough equally. With clean, floured fingers or a large, floured spoon, press each half evenly into a well-greased 8" square baking pan. Bale at 350° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Cut into squares and remove them from the pans to cool completely on wire racks.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
