Orange Nutmeg Shortbread Cookies

Orange Nutmeg Shortbread Cookies

Can you tell I’m preparing for a Christmas Cookie Exchange?!!  These Orange Nutmeg Shortbread Cookies have become another regular Christmas time family favourite in our house.  It’s a little bit of a process having to constantly refrigerate these cookies (as per the original recipe) and admittedly I don’t do it as much as the recipes calls for because seriously who has all day to make cookies?!

And so I did it my way and they turn out just fine.   The orange & nutmeg lends a delicious flavour to these buttery shortbread cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 tsp finely grated orange rind (I typically use a whole orange)
  • ¼ - ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup icing sugar
