1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon water
1 pound butter softened
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Measure sugar into bowl & sprinkle with water. Cream butter into
sugar with a wooden spoon. Add flour and salt and knead dough with
your hands until dough pulls away from side of bowl as well as your
hands. Press dough into a ungreased 9 x 13-inch glass baking pan.
Spread it flat right into the corners. Prick with fork about at 1
inch intervals. Sprinkle all with 1/4 cup white sugar. Bake at 275F
for one hour or until pale golden. Cut while hot into diamonds or
rectangle shapes. A pizza cutter works the best. Let cool.
