The dough for these cookies, tinged with the flavor of orange liqueur, is spread with orange marmalade and brushed with egg and cream so the top browns nicely as they bake.

Cook's Notes

If the dough softens while rolling, transfer it to the freezer or refrigerator until firm. This can be done as often as necessary.

    I would say, looking at the photo, that the writer forgot to say that the strips should be cut before placing on the cooky sheets to bake. The photo clearly shows that these cookies baked on all 4 sides, as they have smooth, sloping "shoulders' and not the square, rough edges of a cut-after-baking cooky.

    It says you cut them before baking in step 4.

    A marble slab that is cold works great for dough like this. Also working with a little at a time from the fridge is helpful too. Handling it with warm hands heats the dough up more quickly too so just use your fingertips to move dough around. Hope these ideas help.

    Do you cut these into cookies after they're baked and cooled?

    because it's a butter dough, and if you don't put it in the fridge until the butter in the dough becomes hard again, you may end up with a dough soft as softened butter (which also means that you will have trouble rolling it). Stick to the fridge, instead of the freezer, and leave it there until the dough is harder, but not solid rock. Happy Baking!

    Why do you have to freeze the dough or put the dough in the fridge before rolling. I find it very difficult to roll when it is cold!!!
