Brown Sugar Cardamon Shortbread Bars 

1 Cup butter, softened

1 1/4 c brown sugar + 2 Tbsp

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. powdered cardamon


Beat together the butter and brown sugar until light and creamy.  Sift the cardamon and flour then add to butter mixture.Gather the dough into a ball and press out on to a lightly greased rectangular baking tray so that it is 1/2" thick. Sprinkle the extra brown sugar evenly on the top and lightly press into the dough.
Cover the tray with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (about an hour). Mark the dough into bars by cutting through to the bottom with a sharp knife.(If you wish to bake this later, the dough will keep in the fridge up to 3 days.) Bake the bars at 150c for 35-40 minutes until firm to the touch.  Press very lightly to see if they are done.  Cool on racks and store in airtight containers.  Makes 36 Bars. Enjoy!
