Almond-Orange Shortbread Cookies

Posted by

Have we told you how much we love cookies? We do! (Surprise, surprise.) And as the holiday season approaches, I'm always looking for simple -- and simply delicious -- new treats. Today, Sarah's baking a batch of almond-orange shortbread cookies that are crisp and buttery. They're the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea in the afternoon (or morning)! Make them today and freeze them for up to three months.

Ready to get baking? Here's what you'll need to get started:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • Grated zest of 1 orange (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
