1
Combine all ingredients; use hands to knead until ingredients are blended. Press dough into parchment paper covered 9x13 inch pan to about 1/4 inch thickness.(you may want to grease the pan slightly so the parchment paper does not slide around as you press the dough to 1/4 inch thickness) .
Before baking mark rectangle cookie lines with knife to make them look more authentic Panera shortbread cookie look .
2
Bake at 325^ for about 20 minutes check after 15 minutes, or until light and not browned. Don't over bake. Cut into cookie squares when cool.
