Brown Sugar & Spice Shortbread




1 cup butter, softened

 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

 2 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

 1/4 tsp each ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg




In a mixing bowl, first combine the spices, then cream butter & sugar with the spices.

 Gradually stir in the flour.

 Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 3 minutes.

 Pat into an 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan.

 Bake at 300 F or 150 C for 25 minutes or until edges begin to turn a golden brown.

 Cool for 5 minutes before cutting, then allow to finish cooling in the pan before inverting it over a cutting board to remove pieces from pan.
