    Prepare the base: In a small bowl, mix together the flour and sugar. Using two knives or a pastry blender or your fingers, cut butter in until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press evenly into 9-inch square, ungreased pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on wire rack.
