I don’t know about you, but I adore shortbread cookies.
My husband Bob says he dislikes shortbread cookies because he thinks they are boring, but he likes these. It must be the icing and the intensely orange flavoring that make these not-so-boring. I make fun of my husband in my cookbooks all the time.
I don’t think he minds it, because he gets to eat pretty well.
I invented these delicious cookies to console Bilbo after the Dwarf invasion of his snug cottage.
- 3 large oranges
