easiest cookies

i found this recipe for 3 ingredient shortbread cookies online today and made them tonight with some added deliciousness of dried cranberries and ground ginger. more ginger for next time, but the crans worked excellently to cut the richness of the cookies.

4 oz. butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour

(added 1/3 cup dried cranberries and some ground ginger - to taste)

cream the butter and the sugar, then add everything else - i did the flour in 2 batches to make things easier. press into the bottom of a 9" square pan, or if you're like me at your 9" square was dirty, use a 9" or 8" round pan. bake at 350 f for 18-20 minutes, let cool on rack in pan. i sliced mine into wedges b/c of the pan - do whatever shapes you like. it'll be slightly puffy and soft at first and then firm up a bit more as it cools. i think they tasted better cooled for a few hours. yum!

Did you use a metal pan or glass? How brown did the bottom get?

I only have glass pans right now and they will behave thermally different than metal is why I ask.

i used metal, but i think that you'd just have to watch the glass more closely so it the bottom doesn't get *too* brown. the bottom and top of mine was a light golden brown.

Ok... I am going to make this right now but with milk chocolate chips in it. I will report back in a few hours. Wish me luck and if you don't hear from me tonight tell my mother I love her.
