easiest shortbread recipe in the world

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of butter

  1. Cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture starts to stick together.

  2. Press into a 9"x9" pan (8x8 works fine too)

  3. Back at 350 F for 20 minutes

  4. Cut while warm, leave in pan until cool (otherwise it just disintegrates as you try to remove it)

It's very buttery and not particularly sweet--a slight nutty flavor, even, which is probably the taste of the baked flour coming through, since there are so few other ingredients to mask it.
