In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Gradually beat in flour. Form into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Next day: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Flatten dough into a circle. Prick all over with the tines of a fork. Using a buttered knife, score into 12 sections. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. These will not brown much.
Yield: 12 slices
Variation: Add grated zest of 1 small lemon and 1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios.
Variation: Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla and 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans. Press into an ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake and cool. Frost with vanilla icing.
