Triple Citrus Rosemary Almond Shortbread Bars
Before making these Triple Citrus Rosemary Almond Shortbread Bars, get the facts on smart selection, storage, prep and nutrition for the recipe:
Selection, Storage and Prep:
- Be careful when zesting the citrus not to get the white bitter part, known as the pith.
- Substitute 1 teaspoon almond extract if you don’t want to use amaretto liqueur.
- Rosemary is so easy to use. Simply hold stem at the top and run fingers down the stem to remove the individual needles before chopping.
- Turbinado sugar is also known as “raw” sugar. The coarse blond-light brown crystals have a delicate molasses flavor. You’ll find it in the baking aisle.
- These bars freeze exceptionally well. Simply place in freezer bag and thaw at room temperature.
- Using unsalted butter means you control the sodium content better in this decadent dessert.
- Rosemary naturally contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
