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:

  1. Be careful when zesting the citrus not to get the white bitter part, known as the pith.
  2. Substitute 1 teaspoon almond extract if you don’t want to use amaretto liqueur.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. These bars freeze exceptionally well. Simply place in freezer bag and thaw at room temperature.

Nutrition:

  1. Using unsalted butter means you control the sodium content better in this decadent dessert.
  2. Rosemary naturally contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
