Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, add flour, cane sugar, and salt to a large mixing bowl and, on low speed, combine for about 5 seconds.

Add butter, 1 piece at a time, and continue mixing until a dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 2–3 minutes.

Using your hands, press the dough into an even layer in the prepared baking pan.

Bake for 14–16 minutes or until set; edges may start to brown.

Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
