Orange Walnut Shortbread Recipe

Bake up this orange walnut shortbread, sprinkled with walnuts and drizzled with a good orange glaze while it is still warm, then cut into small squares for bite size treats. Enjoy orange walnut shortbread along with coffee or tea. This is the real good variation of shortbread. Cold milk, tea or coffee goes perfect with this Shortbread Recipe.

MMMMMMMMMMM! Another sweet treat that I beg ya to find anyone who doesn't love ‘em!
Lets try making wonderful homemade orange walnut shortbread, and chocolate brownies too, that would knock your socks off. The very thought of eating all those super yummy mouthfuls makes me salivate.
There are lots of variations to shortbread recipes, so if ya want, you can get real creative, they all start pretty much the same.
I’m hungry, so let’s get right to baking this little recipe!

Orange Walnut Shortbread Recipe Preparation:
First butter up a 7 by 11 inch baking pan.

Preheat oven to 330 degrees, (DO IT NOW so your oven will be ready when you are.)

An’ make sure your oven racks are IN THE MIDDLE, (Why? Because Orange Walnut Shortbread Cookies aren't too good when they turn out doughy on top, an’ burnt on the bottom, that’s why.)

Orange Walnut Shortbread Cookie Recipe Ingredients:

1 -1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tsp. grated orange peel
1/2 cup (1/4 pound) firm butter, cut into pieces
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp. orange juice
Orange glaze (recipe posted below)

Orange Walnut Shortbread Recipe Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, and orange peel. Rub in butter with your fingers until mixture is very crumbly and no large lumps remain. Mix in 3/4 cup of the walnuts and orange juice. Place mixture in a greased 7 by 11 inch baking pan and press firmly into an even layer.

Bake orange walnut shortbread in a 330 degrees oven for 40 to 47 minutes or until light golden brown color. Meanwhile, prepare orange glaze. Let shortbread cool slightly; then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup walnuts and drizzle evenly with orange glaze. Cut shortbread into about 2 inch squares. Let cool completely in pan on a rack; lift from pan and store in airtight containers.
This orange walnut shortbread recipe makes about 30 pieces.

Orange Glaze Topping

In a mixing bowl, stir together 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel, and 2 tablespoons of orange juice, stir until smooth.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
