Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees, with rack in upper third. Sift flour and salt in a bowl; set aside. Put butter into mixer on medium-high until fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Gradually add sugar , beat until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture all at once; mix until just combined. Butter a 10 inch round springform pan. Using plastic wrap, press dough evenly into pan. With plastic still on dough, refrigerate for 20 minutes. Cut dough into 8 wedges with a paring knife. Using a fork or skewer, prick all over at 1/4 inch intervals. Bake until golden brown and firm in the center, about 1 hour. Transfer pan to wire rack. Recut shortbread into wedges; let cool completely in pan.

This is really good but if you use salted butter, it will taste like a salt lick. I love it with tea-especially if the tea has a squirt of honey and a half-shot of Scotch in it...the perfect bedtime snack.
