Orange Shortbread Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup sugar plus 3 tablespoons for topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup rice flour
  • 1/2 Cup Butter cubed
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary plus 1 teaspoon for topping
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest plus 1 teaspoon for topping
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Instructions
 

  • Place 1/4 cup sugar, salt, and fl ours in a food processor. Pulse 2 to 3 times to mix.
  • Add butter. Continue to pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add orange extract, 1 tablespoon rosemary, and 2 tablespoons zest. Pulse until dough comes together. Dough should not be sticky. (Alternatively, you can combine ingredients in a bowl and use 2 knives or a pastry cutter to cut in butter.)
  • Transfer dough to a clean work surface and roll to smoothen dough. Wrap dough with plastic wrap and slightly flatten into a disc. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and thaw at room temperature for about 20 minutes to soften.
  • Roll dough using a rolling pin and shape into a 4x13-inch, 1/4-inch-thick rectangle on the prepared pan. Cut dough into12 bars using a sharp knife.
  • In a separate bowl, combine remaining sugar, rosemary, and orange zest. Stir to mix well.
  • Brush top of each bar with milk then sprinkle with sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven. Let cool on pan. If cookies expand after baking and stick to each other, use a sharp knife to cut the bars again.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4.
