This recipe is actually my mom's.

Take that, crumbly sawdust shortbread recipes (I‘m talkin‘ to you, Martha Stewart)!  This one’s the best!

Mama Riner’s Oatmeal Shortbread

Makes about 5 dozen pieces.  

1 cup unsalted butter
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ cups flour
3.4 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cup quick oats

Preheat oven at 325°F.  Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl.  Gradually add the flour, oats, and salt.  Press into a greased 13x9x2 pan.   Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.  Cool 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
