Pat dough into 2 circles about 3/4 inch thick and 7 inches in diameter. Place on baking sheet.
Pinch the edge of dough all the way around and prick all over each with a fork.
Chill dough at least 1/2 hour.
Bake in 375^ oven for 5 minutes; reduce heat to 300^ and bake 45 minutes longer.
Shortbread should be pale gold, not brown -when done.
While still warm cut into small wedges - as this is very rich.
Cut 16 pieces from each shortbread disk.
Great with your favorite jam or jelly too!
