Mix butter and sugar well (can use mixer, if desired). Work in 1 cup flour at a time. When mixed well, pat into 2 (9 inch) round cake pans or a 9x13 inch pan. Do not grease. Prick all over top with a fork. Bake at 275 degrees F for about 1 hour. Gets golden brown on top, not brown. Cut while hot.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add 3 3/4 cups flour; mix well. Sprinkle a board with some of the remaining flour. Knead for 5 minutes, adding enough remaining flour to make a soft, non-sticky dough. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 3 x 1 inch strips. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Prick with a fork. Bake at 325 degrees F (preheated oven) for 20-25 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Yield: about 4 dozen
