Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal Spice Shortbread

Mmmmm ... shortbread! This week Donna of Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First chose Dorie's Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies. Having made these before (and loved them!) I decided to do the variation which was Oatmeal Spice Shortbread.

Honestly these would probably be a more appropriate pick for Christmas because with all those spices the house smelt wonderful!

Last time I didn't have any ziploc bags and did have problems rolling out the sticky dough. This time though the bag worked a treat and I ended up with perfect little rectangles of shortbread with minimum fuss.

These are a little plain jane in the looks department but the flavour more than makes up for it. I will definitely be making these again and playing around with different flavour combinations.

Thanks for a great pick Donna! You can find the recipe on Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First under today's date.


  1. Oatmeal spice cookies sound delicious! I used a freezer bag to roll out my dough - it worked OK.

  2. They look great! Next time, I'll give the oatmeal
    version a try.

  3. Ciao ! I'll try your version when it's more cold then !! I think they look cute !

  7. What beautiful cookies! I like the sound of the oatmeal spice variation, too.

  8. I thought this version was rather attractive, actually. I refer to this flavor as the blond shortbread. I baked both versions on the same day. Their baking scents melded together and created a sort of cappucino smell throughout the house. Not a bad thing to come home to! Thanks for baking with me this week.
