     Almond Orange Shortbread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   40
Preptime   15 minutes

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
Grated zest of 1 orange
3/4 cup sliced almonds

Make the dough- In a mixer bowl, beat sugar, almond extract, and salt until smooth. With mixer on low speed, add flour and orange zest; mix just until a dough forms. With a wooden spoon, rubber spatula or y our hands, gently mix in almonds.
Freeze the dough- On a piece of waxed paper, form dough into a rectangular log, 12 inches long, 2- 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch thick. Wrap log in the paper, and freeze until firm. If freezing longer than a day, wrap again in waxed paper.
Bake the shortbread- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Remove dough from freezer. Let sit at temperature for 30 minutes so it slices without crumbling.
With a sharp knife, cut dough into 1/2 thick slices; place on ungreased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Bake until edges just begin to turn golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes; transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely.
