Simple Shortbread Cookies

Simple Shortbread Cookie Recipe... SO yummy with your morning coffee!
(from Demarle at Home's FB page - https://www.facebook.com/DemarleatHome)
 

 1 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon(s) salt
1/4 cup(s) sugar, plus more for sprinkling
... 1 stick(s) unsalted butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 325°. Place Butterfly Tray on Baking Sheet. In a large bowl, combine the flour with the salt and the 1/4 cup of sugar. Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture is the texture of sand. Gently knead the dough just until it comes together. Roll the dough into small balls and transfer into the butterfly tray while pressing down to form the butterfly mold.

Prick the dough all over with a fork and lightly sprinkle the top with sugar. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until pale golden and just cooked through. Serve warm or at room temperature.
