BWD#5 Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread---one of the yummiest, simplest desserts that can be made so many different ways!

I had to improvise this time---no lemons, but we did have a few oranges in the refrigerator---so I substituted orange zest for lemon zest.  It got me thinking---those oranges that are sold around the holiday season that are covered in chocolate!  To make these a bit fancier, I'd probably melt some bittersweet chocolate and dip a corner of the shortbread in them.

In any case, I love the method DG has us utilize---putting the dough into a ziploc and rolling it out.  I wish EVERYTHING could be done this way!!!

Simply adore the tea set and serving table---both wedding gifts!


  1. It doesn't get better than Orange and chocolate. Now you're making me wish I could make an orange version of these cookies . .
    Thanks for baking with us this week!

  2. Hmmmmm, orange and dark chocolate are the perfect combination! I just love your little tea set!

  3. Thanks, Shahieda! We love it, too. :)

  4. I think we all agree on the orange and chocolate. I like it much better than lemon and I do like lemon.

    I like your tea set also.
