Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, combine 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Add chilled butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden.
