Mr. D and I went to a barbeque over Labor Day weekend and when I asked what I could bring, I was told just my sparkling personality. As soon as someone suggests that I sparkle, my mouth goes dry, I start to sweat and everything goes quiet. Yep.
I get quiet.
But only when it’s suggested I sparkle.
I decided to bring something to keep everyone entertained until the sparkle came back. I wanted to bring something sort of sophisticated, simple and delicious. What else but shortbread? I even
jazzed sparkled it up with drizzled chocolate and chopped Heath bar. Soooo yummy.
1 pound salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 cups flour
Mix ingredients together. Place dough in 13×9 pan and press with your hands to flatten. Bake at 325 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or until brown around the edges. Poke holes in the top with a fork to create a pattern and cut with a pizza cutter. If you want to get creative, melt some semisweet chocolate chips and drizzle over the top.
