Rub in butter with your fingers until mixture is very crumbly and no large particles remain.
With your hands, gather mixture into a ball; place in an ungreased 8 or 9-inch round baking pan with a removable bottom, or in a 9-inch spring-form pan.
Firmly press out dough into an even layer.
With the tines of a fork, make impressions around edge of dough; then prick surface evenly.
Bake in a 325Â° oven for about 40 minutes or until pale golden brown.
Remove from oven and, while hot, cut with a sharp knife into 8 to 12 wedges.
Sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon sugar.
Let cool completely; then remove sides of pan and lift out cookies.
