Grandma's Shortbread

This is my favorite Christmas treat. This recipe is from my grandmother who just celebrated her 103rd birthday in September! Nobody makes it as good as her but every year I try.

1 pound butter (at room temperature)
1 C. sugar
4 ½ C. flour
½ tsp. salt

Knead all the ingredients together with your hands. Knead it until it is like bread dough. Press into a 10" x 14" pan. Sprinkle some sugar on the top. Bake it "with love" at 325 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes. Cut into squares when cool.
