Orange Shortbread


Easy orange shortbread cookies are made with flour, brown sugar, orange peel, and butter.


  • 4 cups flour (stir or sift before measuring)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange peel
  • 2 cups butter


Mix flour, salt, sugar, and orange peel. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Work the dough with hands until it holds together; refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick between sheets of wax paper; cut out with floured cutters. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Drizzle shortbread with chocolate glaze or icing, if desired. Makes about 30 to 36 shortbread cookies.
