These were really lovely. I made them at Christmas time. Next time I might add a little bit more cardamom. Also, I sprinkled chopped pistachios on the tips--I thought the green would be a nice contrast to the golden orange and go well with the middle-eastern flavors in the cookies. Yum!

Brought in to a group picnic and the cookies were very well received. They are great even without a glaze. Very easy. I use fresh ground cardamon.

Easy to make and a "refreshing" cookie. Make sure the marmalade is melted to a thin consistancy, so it covers both pans of shortbread.

My kids even loved this! It turned out perfect.

I made these for a Christmas Party. It is more of an adult taste. The adults liked it the kids avoided it.

Before cooking pierce all over with a fork and when cutting use a pizza cutter for cleaner slices. This recipe is my mothers favorite and when I visit I always bring this for tea time.
