Here is one of my favorite Christmas cards:
Another favorite Christmas cookie recipe:
4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups butter, softened
1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp double acting baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Make about 2 hours before serving or up to 1 week ahead.
Into large bowl, measure all ingredients with hands.
Knead all ingredients until well blended. Dough will be soft. Pat dough evenly into 2 9inch round cake pans - with fork, prick dough in many places.
Bake shortbreads about 45 minutes at 325, or until golden brown.
While still warm, cut into wedges. Cool inpan before removing - store tightly in covered container.
Because of butter content, if not eaten within week, freeze.
