Cheese Shortbreads

This is kind of an odd recipe, handed down from my grandmother. They are very tasty, and excellent with tea.


1/2 pound McLaren's soft cheese
1 cup margarine
4 tablespoons icing sugar
2 cups flour


Cream together cheese an margarine very well. Sift together icing sugar and flour. Add to cheese mixture. Roll dough to 1/8-inch (approximately) thickness. Cut with a small round cookie cutter. Or, if you prefer, the dough can be rolled into logs, wrapped in plastic wrap, and refrigerated for about 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator and slice. Place cookies on cookie sheets and bake at 250 degrees until light brown, about 20 minutes.
