This fresh take on classic shortbread is made with ground coriander and freshly grated orange zest, flavors that pair beautifully with butter and sugar and give these cookies an alluring fragrance. The recipe is simple to prepare, but you will need a ruler and metal bench scraper for shaping the dough into a rectangle before baking. Baking on a double layer of kitchen parchment ensures the cookies will not over-brown on the bottom. The cookies should be stored in an airtight container, and will keep for up to a week.

Tip

Don’t wait until the shortbread is cool before slicing all the way through the score marks. They should be cut while warm and slightly soft.

Devine and best shortbread ever!
This is the best and the simplest shortbread recipe I've made in years. It's simple, like everything genius, but consistent and my husband's favourite. Making it every holiday season.
