       1 c  Butter; soft
   2 1/3 c  Powdered sugar; sift
       1    Egg yolk
       2 tb Brandy, whiskey or ouzo
   2 1/4 c  Flour; sift
            Whole cloves
  
   Preheat oven to 350~. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and 1/3 cup
   powdered sugar until fluffy. Add egg yolk and brandy; beat until thick as
   mayonnaise. Gradually add flour, beating until smooth. Flour hands. Pinch
   off small pieces of dough to form round balls 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
   Arrange cookies well apart on ungreased cookie sheet; place a clove in
   center of each. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. On a sheet of waxed paper, pour
   a thick bed of powdered sugar (about 1 cup). Using a spatula, gently
   transfer hot cookies onto sugar as soon as they are removed from the oven.
   Pour more sugar on tops and sides. Cool at least 4 hours before
   transferring to a serving dish. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar so
   shortbread is completely covered.
