fennel-orange shortbread wedges

These Fennel-Orange Shortbread Wedges are an apéro hour delight. Just a little sweet with a salty zip, they are finely flavored and fragranced with orange zest and cracked fennel seeds. They have that crisp yet tender texture that earns the name “shortbread.” These are really good with olives and a piece of cheese. And a glass of wine…don’t forget that. I made half of the recipe and patted the dough out into a six-inch cake pan for baking.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us anytime!

  1. LOL, I will have to remember the glass of wine next time. Good idea to bake them in a six inch pan. I just rolled the dough out to a random size. These were ok for me, but then again, I am not a shortbread person.

  2. I am curious to try these…I like the suggestion of the olives and cheese!

  3. I will definitely be making these for an apéro(IF WE ARE EVER ALLOWED TO MEET FRIENDS AGAIN!). Was surprised at how much I loved them! Great texture and flavour!

  4. We are not appetizer people these days but we do have cheese in the house. Maybe a light lunch instead. Look forward to them.

    • yes, with a shortbread wedge, cheese and a little salad, you’d have a lovely lunch!
