Cornucopia of Carnage: Lane Adamson

When I find myself in Times of Trouble, I need something sweet to eat. This recipe from my late father is quick, tasty, and great for an energy boost while on the run from apocalyptic nastiness of all kinds.

SHORTBREAD
1/2 cup (4 oz) room-temperature butter (not margarine!)
1/4 cup (2 oz) sugar
1 large egg yolk (discard white or freeze in ice cube tray for future use)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in egg yolk and vanilla. Work in the flour. Knead on a cool, unfloured surface (granite counter or marble board best) until dough is smooth in texture.

Very lightly grease a good cast-iron skillet with shortening. Press dough into pan in an even layer (work out from the center). Prick surface liberally with a fork.

Bake at 325 F until lightly brown (like old ivory). Be sure center is fully cooked and not doughy.

Cool 10 minutes. Loosen edges with a sharp knife and flip onto cutting board. You may have to bonk one edge of the pan to release the shortbread. Cut into serving pieces while still warm and enjoy!
