Expert Tips

  • Reshape cookie dough after cutting slices for a rounder shaped cookie.
  • A bartender’s zester with channel knife is the best tool for easily making beautiful shreds of citrus peel.
  • To toast slivered almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
