8 oz Cold Unsalted Butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cups Sugar
2 cups Sifted All Purpose Flour

Combine the butter and the sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the flour and the salt and continue mixing until the dough comes together.

Lightly flour a rolling board and roll the dough out approximately, but not less than, 1/4 inch tick. Cut out the dough with a cookie cutter. Place on a sheet pan that is lined with parchment paper. Bake the cookies for approximately 45 minutes or until firm.

Add 1/2 cup finely ground toasted macadamia nuts to the basic recipe.

This dough may be chilled in refrigerator for a short time to make handling easier.
