FROM OUR RECIPE BOX – Orange Poppy Seed Shortbread Tart

We’re always hunting for versatile recipes, customizable to suit a whim or an

Orange Poppyseed Shortbread tart

ingredient on hand.  Here’s one inspired by the recipe for Hungarian Shortbread in the cookbook Baking with Julia.  It is a buttery, soft shortbread dough.  We’ve sandwiched it with Love’n Bake Poppy Seed Filling.  There is no rolling involved.  Instead you grate the dough right into the pan then pat it down into an even layer.

The filling combinations are endless.  You could use lemon zest in the dough or add a ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, allspice or cardamom.  You can change up the fillings; Love’n Bake Almond, Chocolate or Cinnamon Schmear work well.  And you can layer the fillings such as almond with raspberry preserves or chocolate with apricot jam.  Even dabs of cream cheese on top of a filling like our Prune Lekvar would work well.

The dough freezes well as does the baked pastry.  Keep one on hand for that unexpected guest.

Here is the Orange Poppy Seed Shortbread Tart recipe.
