Fastest FHE Cookies (Shortbread cookies)

I forgot to post a recipe last friday, so here's what we had for FHE yesterday. They are the fastest cookies in the world to make and delicious! (we always sprinkle ours with cinnamon and sugar) I got the recipe out of the "Feed your Family on $10 a day" cookbook by Linda West Eckhardt.

Holiday Fancies

1 cup sugar
2 sticks real butter
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 300. Grease two cookie sheets well. Cut butter into sugar until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg and blend completely. Now add flour and mix to make a very short, crumbly dough. (all can be done in processor in 2 minutes). Using a tablespoon for a mold (or a cookie scoop), press dough firmly into the bowl so that you have an round shaped piece in the spoon... Now slide the cookie onto the cookie sheet. Repeat until you have used all the dough.If you desire, make an indentation in each cookie with your index finger. Using the little spoon, drop a dab of topping into each hole (jam, an almond, a walnut or pecan half, or just sprinkle the cookie with cinnamon and sugar). Bake about 15 minutes until edges are brown. Let stand on cookie sheet 2-3 minutes, then remove to a rack for cooling. Store in a tin, seperating layers with waxed paper.
