Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter and vanilla. In separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Gradually add flour mixture to butter at low speed. Add sugar and mix well. Divide dough into two halves and gently press into 2 disposable 9-inch aluminum pie plates. Dip a fork in cold water and prick dough all over. Sprinkle each round with about 1 tablespoon sugar. Place pie plates on cookie sheet and bake on center rack for 22 minutes, until barely golden. Remove pans to wire rack for 2 minutes. Cut into wedges with pizza cutter.

While still warm, cover pie plate with a dinner plate and flip, so that shortbread is now upside down. Cover with a second dinner plate lined with paper towels and flip again to leave shortbread right side up.
